Share your Eudora folder between systems Apps
I'm switching a lot between OS 9 and OS X (Classic is too slow sometimes). In OS X, I check my mail with Eudora beta for OS X.

Because it is a Carbon app, you can use it under OS 9 with CarbonLib, but then you don't get your mailboxes, prefs etc. You can solve that by making an alias of your Eudora Folder from your OS X user directory (not the Eudora Application Folder) in OS9Drive:Documents.

Works for me.

I replaced the(0S9) Documents/Eudora Folder with an alias to (OS X) /Users/••••/Documents/Eudora Folder.
The old Eudora 5.1 on my OS 9 partition found all the mailboxes on my OS X partition without skipping a hearbeat.

Pretty handy if you're back ad forth.

Put Eudora Folder on a different partion from the OS(es)
Authored by: boboq on Mar 07, '02 04:43:02PM

Similarly, I have my Eudora folder on a separate partition and have aliases in both my OS 9 and OS X partitions pointing to that folder. I can access the folder from my Eudora for OS 9 or OS X, and also from the Classic app on my OS X partition. It all stays the same. I just back up the Eudora Folder on my "Files" partition. Another reason to love Eudora. ;-)>

Eudora X and OS 9
Authored by: Anonymous on Mar 17, '02 08:29:41PM

How to go the other way: use the OS 9 Eudora Settings and Phone Book with the OS X Eudora beta?
