Eudora won't send certain attahments which Mail will

Posted: 08-01-2003, 03:58 PM
Eudora used to be able to send a Quicken data file as an attachment.

Recently my I Book shut itself off (not out itself to sleep!) and I had
to restart. After re-booting I found a message box saying that Eudora
didn't know where to put incoming attachments. I re-established a folder
I had for that which is called "to deal with."

I then wanted to email a Quicken data file to my husband's computer.
It's a routine back up for me. Eudora displayed a broken icon and could
not do it. I quit and restarted Eudora, same result. I logged out and
in, same result.

I sent the file successfully with Mail.

How do i fix Eudora?

Eudora 5.2.1 Sponsered. I-Book 900mhz, Jaguar.

You attachments folder should have nothing to do with your *sending*
attachments. How did you attach the Quicken document? By dragging it to the
attachments line in the outgoing mail or by going Cmd-H and navigating to
the file? Presumably this is when Eudora displayed a broken file icon?

Instead of just logging out and in again, retart the iBook. What happens
then?

If it still doesn't work, check the file system by restarting from the
first system install CD (put the CD in the drive, restart holding down the
'C' key) and run Disk Utility. What does it say?

I wonder if your "desktop" files (or what passes for these in OS X) are
corrupted. Try removing the files

~/Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices.UserCache.csstore

Where ~ is your home directory. And perhaps remove

/Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices.LocalCache.csstore

Log out & log back in. The Finder will rebuild these files. These are
the files (I believe) that keep track of the association between
applications and icons.

(Alternatively you can use "Jaguar Cache Cleaner" to do this. See
versiontracker.com).

I did this, after looking up (again) how to log in as sudo root. But
Eudora still cannot attach Quicken data files. Thanks for trying to
help me.

Quite true. But the message indicated Eudora was affected by the shut
off problem.

I dragged it and it displayed the broken icon. Using Command H or Attach
and navigating shows those files greyed out and not able to be attached.

Restarted....same situation. I'll try Disk Utility next. Thanks.

Oh I see now. Quicken 2003 stores its data files as "Packages" which are
really just folders. You can't attach a folder to a Eudora message. It
would be nice if Eudora could do this...

You could stuff the file before sending it.

Yes it would. I find that to be one of the very few irritations of 3.1.3
Light, which I still use happily. I hadn't realised that later versions
still had this limitation- for that's what it is.

Steve, is there any over-riding reason why Eudora shouldn't accept folders
for attaching?

Only Steve can answer that, of course, but couldn't you just stuff the
folder first and then send it?

Yes. That's what I do (actually I Zip it). But it's two drag'n drops rather
than one. I'm all for labour saving where I can get it.

Once upon a time Eudora would stuff attachments, automatically but now
there is now only a greyed out choice for that (under attach dicuments
in the menu) meaning you have to open stuffit, run the folder or file
over it and then attach it. Why was Eudora's functionality reduced? Can
it be automated by some special setting command?
