Many thanks for your input, everyone. I get the message...

…there's really no replacement for Eudora!

And I also got a message from a friend reminding me that Eudora gets nervous if you let any of your trays get too heavily loaded. About 1,000 posts is the really safe max.

I looked at the mail box that's corrupted itself a couple of times recently, and to my astonishment, found it was up to 2,400+ posts. It's not a critical mailbox and not heavily used normally, so it has been quietly creeping up, and I've had a burst of activity in that area recently.

Oh dear -- so I opened up the back-up, took the scythe and pitchfork to it, and reduced it by2/3rds! I'll see how it goes.

Many thanks for your pointers and tips. I've tried most of the possible alternatives at various times but simply found them wanting compared with Eudora. And that, in turn, comprises two elements, I suppose -- I have been using it since the beginning of time (although I did have a flirtation with Cyberdog of blessed memory) so I am accustomed to it, and it does what I want (or perhaps I do what it allows me to do and I think that’s what I want!).

Either way, I really do find it a very convenient program.

As for Time Machine continual back-ups -- no thanks. I'm on a laptop for light weight, flexibility, and portability, and I spend time away from the power supply. I like to keep back-ups simple. If I lose a bit now and again, so be it.

It’s very rare.

My thanks again for your help. Oh for a Eudora replacement that's as good as Eudora. But I’m not holding my breath.

Cheers, geoff
