Heck you can run Eudora on Linux, but that wouldn't fit into to our
Debian Thunderbird mold...
Eurdora used to store their email in an mbox file. That format is
compatible with Evolution (and I believe T-bird).
For migrating to Evolution you would create the folders in Evolution
then stop Evolution, replace the mbox files created by Evolution with
the ones from your Eurdora - delete the current index files, then
restart Evolution... or you could be a wussy and just use the import
tool (but what fun is that?).
Good Luck - Jon Carnes
