Good Eudora passwd changing daemon for Linux?

Good Eudora passwd changing daemon for Linux?

Post by Mickey Ever » Thu, 15 Jun 1995 04:00:00

I need a working daemon that will work with the "Change Password"
function of Eudora.  I tried the ones at Qualcomm, but due
to compiler errors and other problems I was not able to
get any to work?  Anybody have this up and running?  



1. Q: Converting Eudora folders (.mbx files) to Linux and "Eudora-lookalikes" under Linux?


A good while ago I e-mailed to QualComm and asked if a port of Eudora
to Linux was planned/to be expected. This is because I'm planning a
complete migration from W95 to Linux ("100% MS free" ;-) and Eudora
(of which I'm a big fan) is about the only W95 program that "binds"
 me to W95 (ApplixWare and StarOffice being good Office replacements
 imho). I have not received an answer (apparently they don't bother
to answer this question). Eudora Pro 3 (32bit) does not run (well)
under Linux with Wabi or Wine (Win-emulators), so I'm looking for
"Eudora-lookalike" alternatives under Linux.
I have found two good candidates:


that can (also) use mail files in ones ~/Mail (but also pop/imap).

Now my question:

Has anybody ever written a converter / script that converts Eudora
mailboxes (the .mbx files) to Unix (under ones ~/Mail)?
Preferably the mail folder structure, too, which is very complex in
my case---5 years of Eudora mail!
I think the biggest problem is to convert the From headers, which

(a very versatile mail filter). Has anybody done this?
Please reply by e-mail to me, cuz our news server is shaky at times.
I'll post a summary of replies. Thanks for your time!
