I'm using Eudora Pro 5.1 and attachments are not getting to a recipient who uses Outlook

ms windows


  • 1. Email confirmation
    Is it possible to KNOW for sure when an email has been received? If so, does it work for all ISP's and does Eudora 4.3 have it? I have been told " I KNOW you got my email"! It's driving me crazy!!! Thanks
  • 2. trouble importing
    I just installed ver. 6.0.1 on my winxp laptop. It seems to be able to send and receive, but when I try to import my folders and address book from Outlook Express, it starts to import and then hangs up. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Eudora and it did the same thing. What could cause this hang up? Thanks Dave
  • 3. Running two versions.
    If I understand correctly, if I put my data in a separate data subfolder, and point both programs to that folder, I can run two versions of Eudora against the same data. I can download new mail with version 6 one time, and then use version 3 the next time. I can write an email with one version and post it with the other. Is that right? Can I keep both programs open at the same time? Thanks. Meirman If emailing, please let me know whether or not you are posting the same letter. Change domain to erols.com, if necessary.
  • 4. Saving of attachments..
    Hi i've got a strange issue while saving attachments. it first occured in Eudor a 5.x: when I right-clicked an attachment, and have chosen 'save as' , Eudore opened the 'save file' dialog and crashed. I updated to Eudora 6, but nothing changed. Whenever i right click an attachment to save it in a different folder, Eudora severly hangs. So I have to extract the attachments from the 'attach' folder manually or I do have to start them; both these things i dont like too much. Help is appreciated Tschordi

I'm using Eudora Pro 5.1 and attachments are not getting to a recipient who uses Outlook

Has anyone else experienced this.

Some of my attachments get to the recpient using Outlook (he tells me it is
not Outlook Express) but quite a number of the attachments don't arrive at
his end.

Appreciate any help on this.  I did find an article on internet talking
about Eduora Mac users not being able to send attachments to Outlook users
(and that there is a workaround for the Eudora Mac user by pasting something
into the message header).

I'm not sure if this applies to regular Eudora users (i.e. running on
Windows) sending attachments to Outlook users.

Can anyone help?

Does it relate to the extensions on the file names (.exe, .doc, etc)? If 
so, his Outlook (or the server his Outlook connects to) may be blocking

Hi Douglas,

No it does not relate to the file extension in this case .doc

I am aware that documents ending in .exe for instance will not be
accepted. I have gotten around this issue by zipping .exe files when
I've needed to send them.

Rather, I am wondering if this problem could be related to the Outlook
bug whereby Mac Users of Eudora sending attachments to Outlook Users
are finding their attachments are not getting through, or put it
another way Outlook Users cannot receive attachments send by Mac
Eudora users.

If this is the case I am wondering if Outlook has created a bug fix
for the problem and whether it also affects Windows users of Eudora
trying to send attachments to Outlook users.

I really do not want to have to use Microsoft Outlook as my email
package (perish the thought).

Thanks for your help,

2.Outlook 2002 gives me an error message with I try to import mail from Eudora 5.1


Whenever I try to import my mail messages (I don't really 
need to important address book contacts), outlook tells me 
that "The mail folder could not be opened, if another 
application is using it please close it."

I made sure Eudora was closed before trying this.

My Eudora mail folder is on another partition from the 
default location, so I made a copy of all my mail file in 
the default Eudora folder and tried again, only to see the 
same error. 

Since Eudora will not export to a neutral file type such 
as .CSV or such I tried a couple trialware 3rd party 
programs to do it, but I realized that the message date 
cannot be preserved via .CSV import. 

I have heard that many people convert from obscure mail 
format to Eudora format before converting to .pst, because 
it supposedly works well. I cannot understand why I am 
having such difficulty doing what many consider a simple 

By the way I also have MS Activesync installed if that 
makes a difference. 

For the life of me I cannot figure out what is causing 
this. Maybe one of you knows what is going on, and I'd

5.2nd e-mail account using Eudora 5.1?

Using Win98S; Eudora 5.1.1

We have been getting lots and lots of spam at our current e-mail
address.  I want to set up another account/persona on Eudora 5.1.  I'd
like to keep the current address for some weeks, checking both, before
closing the older one.  Is that possble?

I have set up a 2nd acount with my ISP.  If it is possible, how do I
configure/use Eudora to check both accounts?

I get far enough to have Eudora check mail for the New account, but I
get this error message:

"New, Logging into POP Server, PASS ...  There has been an error
transferring your mail.  I said:  PASS <shhh! Dont' tell anyone.>  and
then the POP server ( XXXX@XXXXX.COM ) said: ERR Login

I kept the same domain with the new user name, even though I could
have chosen a different one.

Hoping someone can help me.
