Because of its long heritage and [potentially] decades of conditioning, classic Eudora users may find the shift to all new keyboard shortcuts to be a jarring and inconvenient transition. With this in mind, Eudora OSE gives you the choice of using the classic Eudora keyboard shortcut profile, or if you prefer, you can use the standard Thunderbird shortcuts.

This page does not attempt or claim to be comprehensive. Instead, it lists some of the most common and useful shortcuts.
