Working in Eudora??
Authored by: syko on Oct 31, '02 03:18:15PM

I don't think this would work, because it wouldn't 'automatically' update in Eudora if you got Eudora to read the mbox format (you have to change the type creator, etc., as well)..

I'm working on a solution to have my os x machine grab my mail, spam filter it, then allow eudora to read it..
i got about 100 spams a day... grrrrrrrrrrr i'd use mail.app but i have thousands upon thousands of messages that mail.app would choke on..

I've got tens of thousands of messages in dozens of folders that mail.app hasn't choked on.

Working in Eudora??

My Eudora folder is 1.15 GIGs of space...

Eudora handles it with eaaaaase.. now, i'm sure Mail could probably read an text file just as nice as Eudora, but can it search as quickly? or can it 'open' a message as quickly? or use the screen space that is available efficiently? and more importantly, will it be as 'fast' as Eudora?

I've used mail app before and I already know the answers, otherwise I'd be using Apple's mail program..

I'll assume that you can work out grabbing your mail yourself with either fetchmail, or some kind of mail alias or .forward file to pipe your email through your procmail recipe or other spam filter program. How about using a wrapper program to send your email back up to the SMTP server if your spam filter determines that it's a clean file. You can send it back up to a different username, and use a different personality profile in Eudora to download it again to a format Eudora can read.
