Eudora
Q: 
Can I use xxxx2Eudora 1.01 with the new Eudora 5.0?
A: 
Yes - Even so, Eudora 5.0 has a new address book layout and new fields added, xxxx2Eudora 1.x will still work. It will not fill all the fields (like home-phone, home-fax, home address, etc) and will fill some informations in fields no longer supposed to take that information (e.g. in Eudora 5.0, the address field is now supposed to take no more than the street-address, but xxxx2Eudora will still copy the whole address into that field). But this will not limit the functionality. Version 2.0 which supports both Eudora until 4.x and 5.0 has been released on January 12th, 2001. The update for registered users is free.

Mac - xxxx2Eudora for Mac
Q: 
What about xxxx2Eudora for Mac?
A: 
I have never had a Mac at my fingertips, so I've no idea how and where... I am still trying to find an associate who could and would - but please do not count on it.

Nicknames
Q: 
Is there any way for a user to alter the conversion scheme for the nickname? You currently convert LastName and concatenate the first initial of FirstName. Some folks use first initial of FirstName, the concatenate LastName. Some use first initial of FirstName, then concatenate no more than 7 characters of LastName. Still others use FirstName, insert a "." and then concatenate LastName.
A: 
Yes, with the registered version you would be able to make xxxx2Eudora construct the nicknames after you own liking: All of the variants you've mentioned (and many more) would be possible.
Use the 'Config' button and choose the tab 'Nicknames'.

Q: 
Comma: I have set my nickname to be "lastname, firstname" (eg. "Dow, John") and am using quotes. When I select a nickname, the email address is correct, but when I try to use it to write an email (by double-clicking the nickname or click "To" or "cc"), the email only has the nickname, not the email:
It creates an email with the "To:" line of "Dow, John" instead of the email of jdow@anywhere.com. Eudora then tries to send an email to Dow@nowhere.com and John@nowhere.com.
A: 
The problem is the comma (,). Eudora refuses to accept commas in a nickname. If I try to create a new nickname within Eudora with "Dow, John", Eudora gives me an error message, that say "Nicknames cannot contain leading or trailing spaces or a comma."
The reason is that you can enter multiple nicknames (separated by commas) in the "To:" field so that the e-mail will be send to all of them. So "Dow, John" is interpreted by Eudora to send the email both to "Dow" _and_ to "John".
The added "@nowhere.com" originates in:
Tools | Options | Sending Mail | "Domain to add to unqualified addresses".

Q: 
I cannot export my palm address book to eudora with FirstName Space LastName. I can do FirstName_LastName or FirstName,LastName. When I put in a space, I get FirstName ONLY.
A: 
It all depends on which version of Eudora you're using: Newer versions (4.0 or higher) support spaces within the nickname, when the nickname is enclosed in quotation marks. Therefore please start xxxx2Eudora, choose button 'Config', choose tab 'Nickname' and check the option 'Enclose Nickname in quotes'. xxxx2Eudora will then export 'John D Dow' as "John D Dow".
Older versions of Eudora (prior to 4.0) support neither spaces within nicknames nor enclosing quotation marks (And therefore no nicknames in the form 'FirstName LastName'). If you are using a version of Eudora prior to 4.0 you therefore cannot use spaces within a nickname. You have to replace all spaces with underscore characters (_). Therefore please start xxxx2Eudora, choose button 'Config', choose tab 'Nickname' and check the option 'Replace whitespaces with underscores'. xxxx2Eudora will then export 'John D Dow' as 'John_D_Dow'. Make sure that you do not use whitespaces as separators.

Synchronisation: Eudora® to Palm Desktop
Q: 
What about a sync from Eudora to Palm?
A: 
The problem is that the whole thing would be a three-way-sync (Palm device<->Palm Desktop<->Eudora) with a hell of a lot of possible conflicts impossible to solve elegantly. I have chosen not to mess around with that and thought that is better to have two places (Palm device and Palm Desktop) to administrate the addresses and have the results in Eudora. Anyway, there's tool at www.palmgear.com called 'Eudora2Palm' which turns an Eudora Nickname file into a tabulated text file ready to be imported into the Palm Desktop...
