Eudora images and mail.app Internet
If you get mail with a picture from somebody sending mail with Eudora and you try to read it in Mail.app you might need to tell them to re-send that picture as an attachment and not embedded between lines of text. If they don´t the only thing you see of that picture is a tiny little purple icon. Me and a friend triple checked this in mail sent with Eudora (5.x) and we also used AppleDouble, AppleSingle, BinHex and Uuencode data fork. So ask them not to paste or drag & drop any pictures between lines of text. They can paste the picture after the last word or as an attachment.

I don´t know if Mail.app is to blame but I know the problem will end up in Apple's Mail.app for MacOS X. The different encodings do not affect the jpeg-picture or the message.

eudora attachments appearing as pdf
Authored by: grid on Apr 16, '01 07:06:17PM
re eudora attachments:
This has always been a problem for PC users receiving emails from Mac Eudora users. (Although I don't remember purple blobs, only garbled or "corrupted" files.) I generally try and remember to drag-and-drop to the header section of the email.

on a related note:
I have overall been very happy with Eudora's beta product, however, when receiving in-line attachments in some formats, the attachment has been converted in some strange way into a pdf. In particular, illustrator files have been affected by this. The file even opens fine in illustrator, but it appears as a pdf, and is somehow viewable in eudora.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Illustrator files ARE pdfs.

Well, more precisely, native Illustrator files up to 8 are EPS, and native Illustrator 9 files are PDFs. They just traditionally get saved with a '.ai' extension and Illustrator as the associated application..
