[Micronet] Eudora to thunderbird

Lucy Greco
Hello:
 I have a user that I just found out is still using Eudora. I learnt this
when she came to me with a complaint that her e-mail is not working write
any more and she needs to fix it.  then a student worker tried to help her
by moving her over to thunderbird. Somehow this did not work at all. She is
now in the situation ware Eudora is coming up as the default mail client but
it is set to pop and she can't see her mail in thunderbird. When she looks
in cal mail all the mail is gone.
Now with the back ground here are my questions
How do I get Eudora mail out of Eudora on a mac and in to thunderbird?
Second how do I then remove Eudora from her system to be sure that Eudora
does not hijack the mail again?
 And lastly if importing the mail to thunderbird has already partially been
done does thunderbird have a way to check for duplicate messages?

Eudora is tricky because it splits attachments from messages and stores
them separately.  I'm not sure about on Mac, but on the PC Thunderbird
has an import feature which I've had varying amounts of success using to
import messages from Eudora.

Another alternative would be to setup an imap account in Eudora to
calmail and copy the messages from eudora into the imap account.  Then
you can do the same thing in Thunderbird, but in reverse.  That is,
create an imap account in Thunderbird and copy the mail out.

You might want to consider having them not use pop at all.  Calmail now
has 10gig quotas which should be enough for most people to just leave
their mail there.

As for dealing with duplicate messages, there is a thunderbird extension
which can handle that:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/remove-duplicate-messages-alte/

To remove Eudora I think you just open the applications folder and drag
it to the trash.
