Moving Eudora files (Mac)

Document ID: 1655HQ

ISSUE:

How do I move my Eudora files from one Macintosh to another Macintosh?

OR

What are the important Eudora files that I want to backup?

SOLUTION (MAC OS X):

NOTE: YOU'LL NEED TO QUIT EUDORA PRIOR TO BACKING UP, COPYING, MOVING, OR TRANSFERRING ANY EUDORA FILES.

Your Eudora data files are all stored in the "Eudora Folder" - which is found in the user specific Documents folder.

All your mailboxes, mail folders, address books, signatures, stationery, and settings are stored in the Eudora Folder. Copy this entire folder to the new computer and place it in the "Documents" folder on the new computer.

FYI: The "Eudora Folder" should not be confused with the "Eudora Application Folder". The Eudora Folder keeps your data files - while the Eudora Application Folder stores the program itself.

SOLUTION (MAC OS 9 or earlier to MAC OS X):

Your Eudora for Macintosh data files are all stored in the

"Eudora Folder" - which is usually found in your System Folder or Documents folder.  Copy this entire folder to the new computer and place it in the user specific " Documents" folder on the new computer.

SOLUTION (MAC OS 9 or earlier):

Your Eudora for Macintosh data files are all stored in the "Eudora Folder" - which is usually found in your System Folder or Documents folder.

All your mailboxes, mail folders, address books, signatures, stationery, and settings are stored in the Eudora Folder.  Copy this entire folder to the new computer and place it in either the Documents folder or the System Folder on the new computer.

FYI: The "Eudora Folder" should not be

confused with the "Eudora Application Folder". The Eudora Folder keeps your data files - while the Eudora Application Folder stores the program itself.


NOTE: Should you transfer your Eudora data to an external drive (a second hard drive, memory stick, USB drive, etc.) or burn the Eudora data files to a CD/DVD, you will need to first format the disk/drive for the MAC operating system before moving your Eudora data onto the external storage media. If not, the Eudora files will not be stored and transferred in the proper Macintosh file format when moved to the new computer. Also, when burning files to a CD-R (CD+R) or DVD-R (DVD+R), make sure that you "Get Info" (cmd + I) on the file to disable the "Locked" (Read Only) status.
