I get an error about a Corrupt Mailbox Table of Contents.

I get an error about a Corrupt Mailbox Table of Contents If a table of contents (TOC) file for a particular mailbox is corrupted, Eudora will not be able to open the mailbox until the TOC has been rebuilt.


Agree to let Eudora rebuild the table of contents when you get this message. You will not lose any mail, though you may lose the status (read, unread, etc.) information for the messages.

Also, messages that you've deleted from that mailbox may reappear if you hadn't compacted the mailbox since they were deleted.

If this happens to you more than once with a specific mailbox, try the following:

  1. Exit Eudora.

  2. Find your "Eudora Folder" (usually found in either the "System Folder" or "Documents" folder).

  3. In the "Eudora Folder', open the "Mail Folder" and look for a .toc file for that mailbox.

  4. If you have a .toc file, delete it. If you do not have one, you may want to delete the entire mailbox file after first transferring all the mail from that mailbox into another mailbox in Eudora.

If this happens to you often, you may want to have your machine checked for possible problems, such as directory or hard drive errors.
