[Eudora and Mail] Importing e-mail into Mail ?
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.

I used to receive data in mail from users. I used to read those data
and load that into a ORACLE table. However I am not able to delete
those mails after reading and loading it.
Currently I delete them manually when the mail file grow very big
Is there a way we can delete these mails after we read it using shell
...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?

I use pine to access my mail (via login to an IMAP server).
Pine seems to create two directories <home>/Mail and <home>/mail,
and both directories seem to contain identical copies of
all my folders. Is there a configuration option that will
ensure that pine maintains only one such directory?

Having used Eudora for too many years, I now have a real mess in the references
to attachments. Many of the attachments are no longer accessible from the
messages that they arrived in, even though they are still in the attachments
The main issue here is that I have moved Eudora to a new machine every few
years, and the startup disk has typically had a new name. This in itself is not
a big problem, and Eudora still seems able to find the files. (But it does leave
the reference in the mailbox with the old disk's name.)
However, the other part of the reference is the...Odd problem MAIL and DECW$MAIL (sequential MAIL.MAI)
