Gmail is already my primary email workplace, I use Eudora primarily for maintaining a local archive. So this migration was really more sensible than my old forward from Gmail setup.
It took me a while to get Eudora working with gmail -- I kept getting timeout errors. I had no trouble with OS X Mail.app, so I figured I was missing something in my configuration. Turns out I had two errors:
- I had to require eudora use its "alternate" port (be nice if Eudora simply let me set the port address) for both send and receive.
- Leave mail on server must be unchecked.
- It doesn't matter whether I archive email or leave it in the inbox - it comes across when I access the pop service.
- If I send mail from eudora it's saved as sent email both in eudora and gmail.
Overall it's a nice improvement. I mostly use Gmail and delete whatever I don't care to keep, so this will reduce the amount I store in my home archive.
