From Eudora to Gmail.

I have used the email client Eudora since about 1997 when I did a post doc at TU Delft.  However, now Eudora is no longer really support so I thought I should switch to another email client and decided to go for Googles Gmail.

I exported all my old emails Eudora to Gmail using the IMAP mode. It was fairly easy. However, it seems that Eudora adds custom headers to emails so not all old emails shows up properly in Gmail.  However, installing the script http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/62058 that works in Firefox, then most old emails shows up properly.

To summarize I am very happy about my switch from Eudora to Gmail. It is so nice to have all your emails available online everywhere.
