Check Mail returns no mail when in fact there is mail
On my laptop which connects to an SBC DSL internet connection via a wireless
network in our home, both Eudora 6.2 and 7.0 (I downloaded 7.0 in hopes it
would fix this problem) checks for mail, retrieves none and tells me I have
no new mail. In fact, there is mail which I can retrieve through a browser
on the laptop or on our desktop computer. I have all account settings set
identical to the Eudora program on our desktop computer (which connects
directly to the DSL without utilizing the wireless connection). I can send
mail from the laptop just fine using Eudora.
I get no error message when attempting to check for mail, just the dialogue
box telling me I have no new mail. The small circle that appears in the
lower right corner of the status bar turns as it normally does when the
program checks for mail, then in about 2 seconds the dialogue box appears to
say I have no new mail.
Any suggestions for fixing this problem?

After many years using Eudora, I think it is time to switch. Eudora is
corrupting its mailboxes, old messages tend to mix up and become unreadable.
This is unfortunate as otherwise Eudora does the right things for me.
So the questions are :
- which e-mail app do you recommend (on a PowerBook G4/667, 10.4.10) ?
- I am currently trying Mail; succeeded in importing the Eudora
mailboxes except the Inbox (1GB) -> how do I import it ???
Try Eudora Mailbox Cleaner.
Worked perfectly for me.

I imported my email from an iMac g5 to a MacBook Pro running Leopard. I now
have an inbox, sent box, Trash, and underneath that a set of folders I'd
created in Mail on the iMac for various mail stuff.
Under that is a gmail heading (all my mail comes to Mail app from Gmail),
and under that another inbox, sent box.
Is there a way to meld these two inboxes? Last time I looked, a new mail
coming in showed up in both places, requiring me to select each in turn.

Cause: Eudora got tired of waiting for the server. (10100)
Any suggestions for me? I am using Eudora in light mode, but

Now on my second day of Panther. Imported all my mailboxes and
everything seemed fine. Received my messages without any trouble.
Today I can send out OK, but it hangs on "the preparing to get mail"
after the password message. Then it just times out. The account data
looks fine. Figured it might be my server. I cloned my old Jag disk to
a firewire external, so I booted into Jag, and it got my mail just fine.
Any ideas as to why it's hanging and what I can do about it? (I looked
at the user library mail preferences, but didn't want to delete or
rename them in fear of making a bigger mess.)
