I'm trying migrate my Eudora mailboxes to Mac OSX from Windows. Eudora for OSX is in beta, and despite following the instructions closely I can't get the migration to work. I suspect the import facility is just not complete yet.

I generally like the mail application that comes with OSX, but it won't import the windows eudora files and has no documentation of any value that I can find.

So two questions - 1) Got any ideas of how to get my Eudora mailboxes imported into either Mail or Eudora for Win OSX, 2) Any other e-mail programs I should consider that might be able to do the migration and that might have some advantage over Eudora (too many confusing windows) or Mail?
The early bird may get the worm, but the early worm gets eaten!

Converting mailboxes involves changing PC linefeeds to Mac format. See this site:

As you probably know by now, Eudora for OSX is now at 6.0.2 and runs extremely well. I think it runs circles around Mail or any of the other mail apps for OSX. Just my 2 worth of unsolicited testimony.
