Eudra 8.0.0b1 (MS Win-XP SP2)

Two "Who" column exist. They can be displayed at same time by checking both.
When Inbox folder and first "Who" is checked and single "Who" column is displayed, switching to Sent folder changes column choice to second "Who".

Above indicate that, (a) both "Sender" and "Recipient" still exist, (b) still switching each other according to folder, although column name and column content are already/successfully changed to "Who".
This is actually somewhat intentional. It is related to the unified 'who' column support that prior Eudora versions had (where the who column shows the sender for incoming email, and the recipient for outgoing email).

Setting the setting 'mail.useWhoColumn' to 'true' enables the unified who behavior. This will be a default in the future.

Following is setting(has "who") in new profile for Eudora 8.0.0b1, and is already defaulted to true..
What is difference between "current behavior I reported" and your "unified who behavior" in the future?
 
> ldap_2.servers.whowhere.description  default string   WhoWhere Directory
> ldap_2.servers.whowhere.position     default integer  0
> ldap_2.servers.whowhere.serverName   default string   ldap.whowhere.com
> mail.useWhoColumn                    default boolean  true

By the way, I couldn't find any flag for "sent mail or not" in mail source(such as X-Mozilla-Staus:). How "sent or received" is identified by Eudora and where the status is kept? Only identity(mail address) based? Or other data such as X-Account-Key: (curently set for downloaded POP mail), FCC: / X-Identity-Key: (draft mail), are also used to distingush sent mail and non-sent mail?

Can "unified who" is easily imported to Thunderbird or Seamonkey?
Some people want it. I dislike current "Switching to Recipient when Sent folder" since I started to use Netscape 2, and I eager to use "unified who" with my Seamonkey.
