I'm trying to import mailboxes from Eudora into Mail. Unfortunately, Mail crashes right in the middle of the process.  Has anyone had this problem?  If it can't be solved, is there a way to do this manually? Finally, if all else fails, what do you consider to be a good email program other than Mail?  I'd like to upgrade to Snow Leopard and


iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.2), 4 GB

    Last I knew, Eudora ran fine under 10.5.8

     

    Could be many things, we should start with this...

     

    "Try Disk Utility

     

    1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.

    2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu at the top of the screen. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)

    Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.

    3. Click the First Aid tab.

    4. Select your Mac OS X volume.

    5. Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk."

    Then try a Safe Boot, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, reboot when it completes.

     

    (Safe boot may stay on the gray radian for a long time, let it go, it's trying to repair the Hard Drive.)
