Recover from Eudora Beta crashes Apps
Steve Harley sent the following around to Omni's OS X Talk list, and gave permission to republish it here. If you're using the (now fairly old) Eudora OS X beta, here's his tip to recover from a particularly type of crash:
although it's probably my most used app, i've had only about one crash per month since late summer from Eudora, and this is the first that caused any kind of harm -- when i attempted to restart Eudora, it drew some but not all of the windows i had open, then immediately quit. i did a little bit of juggling of settings and preferences files and found that my Eudora Settings file was the problem.

my backups are a little stale, so as an experiment, i set out to explore and possibly repair the resources in the corrupt file in ResEdit. but as soon as i opened the corrupt settings file, ResEdit informed me it had made "minor repairs". i just saved it and tried it out --
success!

so if Eudora X gets in a state where it won't fully start up, try opening (a copy of) "Eudora Settings" in ResEdit.
In a follow-on email, Ben H. recommends not using command-W to close windows while Eudora is doing anything else. He's found that this almost always guarantees Eudora will crash.

Anyone have any word on when (if?) Eudora Final for OS X will be out?
