Hi Ralph:

This latest post which my genius son in Ottawa discovered makes my earlier one today irrelevant! It is now downloading email from two years ago, several hundred at a time, but I'd rather have it twice than not at all. I assume I need a separate "app-specific" password" for each personality? Also, I gathered from your references to Telus that you were in Canada, which seem to be confirmed. I'm near Toronto!

Thanks again for this amazing blog, and for letting us enjoy Eudora again.

Cheers,

Jim

Hi Ralph:

Not quite out of the woods yet! So far I have only got my "main" email address fixed with the "app-specific password" gambit - I have at least one more to go. (I gather I need a separate app-specific password one for each address?) But on that main address, when I click "Check Mail", it starts to download a bunch of messages, typically some 300 to 400 of them. I repeat the process and get another batch. I've gone through about seven iterations so far, but there's no way I get 300 to 400 messages a day, let alone seven times a day! The "sizes" of the relevant mailboxes do increase with each pass, so it seems to be retrieving older messages, presumably duplicates of ones already there. I have spotted some duplicates, but there's a LOT of messages in there, so I'm not 100% certain if those duplicates might have been there before.

The other weird thing is, it does not seem to be retrieving any NEW messages! The "newest" date I have downloaded since this app-specific fix is June 7, which is about when this issue started. Is it trying to download every email message I have ever received? I have sorted each mailbox by date

Your suggestions have been so helpful - so close, and yet still a way to go! Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Cheers,

Jim

I would go directly into your linked GMail account at http://mail.google.com to see what is going on.

Hi Ralph:

My Eudora downloads are complete! As mentioned earlier, it would only do 300 - 400 messages at a time, so it took 31 passes through the backlog to get them all. But it looks like I'm back in business again.

And again, thank you.

I also stumbled into some other areas of your blog. You are one busy guy! Keep up the great work.

Cheers,

Jim

An alternative to the Eudora email program is Pandora which is found at http://www.drivehq.com/web/brana/pandora.htm.

Pandora has a very similar Look and Feel to Eudora, costs $14 for version license, and has an active developer who fixes bug and adds new features. Many of the Eudora shortcomings are fixed including Gmail authentication.

Check it out
