Subject: Classic Macs Digest browsing

 

Here is a nice way to browse Classic Macs Digests:

 

1. In Eudora, select the Classic Macs Digests you want to browse (via

Command- or Shift-clicking the messages).

 

2. Choose File/Save as... and select "Include Headers" (for some reason

this works better than if the headers are omitted). Uncheck "Guess

Paragraphs".

 

3. Feed this saved text-file through MailConverter which converts it to a

sendmail-file which can be browsed either with:

 

4a. Eudora: place the converted file in Eudora's mail-folder (it is an

Eudora mailbox!), start Eudora and browse the messages. When replying,

check if you want to reply to the poster or to the list.

 

Tip: It is possible to sort the messages by subject in Eudora.

 

4b. Browse the converted file with Easy View. Easy View has a settings file

adjusted for sendmail (Sample Formats:Internet Mail Folder:Internet Mail)

-- just place the converted file in this folder, open the Easy View

settings file in that folder and start browsing.

 

Tip: In Easy View, you can browse the message list up/downwards by 8/2 on

the numeric keypad. You can also clip interesting articles to a file.

 

BTW, Easy View's settings file may be adjustable for Classic Macs Digest

format but I haven't figured out how to edit it properly. Classic Macs

Digest's message headers seem to vary a little and my edited Easy View

settings file gets confused if Date isn't the 1st message header.

 

All these applications work on 68000 macs.

 

MailConverter:

Eudora Light 1.5.5 needs at least System 7; v1.3.1 works on System 6.

v3.1.3 has many additional features like filters and it also no longer

splits large messages; it is somewhat slower than v1.5.5.
