Mailboxes not imported properly from Eudora Empty Mailboxes not imported properly from Eudora

Tue Jan 11, 2022 1:02 am
I imported accounts from Eudora, and most mailboxes imported their contents, but several did not.

Analyzing the failure, I see that all the mailboxes that failed to import had an exclamation mark prepended (eg. !Friends Family) to put them at the top of the mailbox list.

This worked fine in Eudora, but does Pandora not allow exclamation marks in mailbox names?

And how do I efficiently recover from this importing failure?

I find no guidance in Help, so many Thanks for any advice here!

If there is no mailbox titled !Friends Family or _Friends Family, under "Import/Local Mailboxes - Eudora", try this:
1. Go back to Eudora, create brand new mailbox "Friends Family", copy messages from "!Friends Family" to "Friends Family".
2. Inspect "Friends Family" make sure there are no corrupted messages.
3. Compact mailboxes, close Eudora, try import again.

Apparently the Pandora importer does not like Eudora mailbox names prepended with an exclamation mark "!".

I renamed the Eudora mailboxes by deleting the exclamation marks, imported, and the mailboxes and contents imported just fine.
