After 25 years I'm considering the switch from Eudora to Pandora. It's mostly because of the UTF-8 character and HTML rendering problems, but also because I'm worried about upcoming certificate issues that I luckily haven't yet encountered but expect to arise.

My email archive, which I will want to import, is huge; over 650,000 messages plus embedded images and attachments; a total of 67,000 files in 118 directories taking 23 GB.

I understand that Pandora, like Eudora, allows attachments to be stored separately and in multiple directories, which is critical. But how does it store embedded images? Eudora puts them, as separate files, into one giant "Embedded" directory. Mine currently has over 28,000 files, which is unmanageable, and I know many have gone missing over the years. Does Pandora have a better solution?

Pandora has separate options for saving attachments and inline images.  The default is to save the item as part of message.  Attachments and images also have separate options for sent and received items.

I have chosen to save files and inline images as part of the message.

I do not know what the Pandora structure look like when messages/images are saved as files.  I would suggest trying out Pandora to see how those options are implemented.  Be sure to set the personality to leave mail on server during the experiment.

I suggest when importing the message into Pandora not to do everything at once.  Start off with one folder and a few mailboxes to get a feel for the import process. Then scale up or down the size and number of messages imported at one time.
