I just discovered three things.

1) Calypso (the email program I use) is capable of importing various mailbox formats, among which is the one used by Eudora.

2) I have been including my eudora email in my regular backups for quite a while now.

3) I now have messages y'all sent me from as far back as 29.Jul.1997 (perhaps farther, but I haven't found them yet) at my fingertips.

have I ever mentioned how I never delete email?

I'm pretty sure I've got mail saved back as far as 96 or even 95. I don't delete very often either.

only because I switched programs.

I think 20.Jul.1997 was when I started using Eudora. I can't seem to find anything older than that, but I have quite a few from around that time. I know I was using email back in 1992 (when I signed up for my first ISP account, eriforyp@netcom.com (I think)), but I don't know what program I had it in after I stopped using Pine.
Whatever it was, I don't think I have it archived. Pitty, it would be interesting to read through email almost 10 years old.

Mine are old AOL emails - I actually moved the files to my new computer and never deleted them when I stopped using AOL.

I've got a current Eudora mbox going back to about 97. I've got eudora *.mbx files going back to 86 or so. And if I get REALLY REALLY anal about it, I think i've got a backup set from my old Macintosh SI with a Mac-Eudora mbx going back to 1993.

What the frell I plan to DO with alla those files, I'za got no clue.
