I think there's more impact from large web caches than loose attachment files, even if you don't have an IE with absurdly large web cache size to fight with ;-) Mailboxes Check This Out

Any ideas gratefully received. This is where being able to set an attachment folder for a mailbox would be very useful. According to the progress bar and when you check the size it shows 10.2 MB but the attachments are MIA--OE shows it as not having attachments and no option to save Do it, please. have a peek at these guys

Errr: There is lots of pre-Spotlight OSX as well as "Spotlight off because it breaks things" boxes as well.. I am pissed that the Eudora mac people have > had this. The advantage: Export a maildir from the mail server as a share and save all the reading/copying etc. When later the attachment is moved, only the link must be updated.

But as you have to define a filter for moving Smith's MESSAGES to mailbox "smith" anyway, that's next to no extra effort - just add the "Move Attachments..." action. Why this was never done for the Win users I have no idea. It's good exercise for my finger, and I will use the middle one to do it...

Some said using plain text would help. As is often the case, the longer this goes on the more simple I expect the final resolution to be, but am the moment, I am completely baffled. Further, I suggest that attachments be stored in per-message sub-directories; this would solve the attachment renaming problem. But all of the discussion here is on separating attachments from messages upon receipt, and then (optionally) have them moved to special places.

You'll be able to ask any tech support questions, or chat with the community and help others. I'd like to see each mailbox represented as a directory (specifically a package on OS X) containing the plain-text mailbox, index, and -- optionally, perhaps -- a subdirectory for attachments.

I also think that it should store the path to the attachment files as relative to the mailbox file, rather than an absolute path -- that way you can robustly archive The global "delete attachments with message" (or whatever > it is called) is too coarse. ?? Resorting to what will probably be ugly metadata to build a robust cross-platform solution wouldn't be good. this contact form If, however, you look at the size of the e-mail it is evident that it's not just a few lines of text.

I don't want malware hidden on my PC, anywhere, and dependent on the av to catch it every/any time it might be invoked. Thanks also to VistaRookie for your help in getting to the bottom of this. b) A useful side effect of this separation is that, as attached files are written on disk upon receipt, they are scanned by the resident antivirus software on the spot.

Maybe a separate bugzilla entry should be made dependent on this (request bug # 359319)?

When the same email was sent to a friend, who then forwarded it to me, I got the attachment ok in OE. This post has been flagged and will be reviewed by our staff. And I second the request for being able to manually fix up attachment links, if the need arises. or should it check the list in the other order? ;-) If data is moved so that links are broken (i.e.

From a fragmentation perspective, large slow-growing files (like mailboxes) become fragmentation issues in their own right, which contributes to the risks I mentioned; also, defragging may find it more difficult to Advertisements Latest Threads Who uses HomeKit? Comment 68 Sheldon King 2007-05-21 15:35:56 PDT I agree that separating attachments is a Good Thing in Eudora, however I do have some concerns that the current attachment handling on the But linking is needs as I do move the smith folder around in the mydocuments folder.
