We use Eudora on Windows as e-mail program. Eudora generates many
"mailboxes"; a "Eudora mailbox" consists of 2 files, one of which
contains e-mails, and the other is a table of contents.
For each user, the Eudora data directory is inside his/her home
directory. The home directories are Samba shares (Samba 2.2.8 on
As long as we have used samba 1.9, there was no problem, but since we
have upgraded our samba to 2.2.8, the "mailbox" files have problems.
The error message is always: "The mailbox <name> has a Damaged Table
of Contents." The Table of contents can be rebuilded, but previously
deleted or moved message appear not to have been effectively deleted
No other file acces problems have been reported by our users with
other applications (Office, matlab, scientific package) using the
Samba 2.2.8 shares.
The used versions of Windows are NT4, 2000 and XP. There are no
differences of behaviour.
