Eudora Mail is one of the most outdated email clients that was used on the classic Mac OS, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows operating systems. Users of Eudora are switching to another platform one of which is Outlook Mail. As you would have probably discovered that we can’t depend on Eudora or Outlook to migrate our email messages. Eudora has no export option and the import tool in Outlook 2013 & above doesn’t support Eudora. Outlook 2010 and older version provides the import options in their run time environment, but if you’ve tried it, you already know the results are awful.

Here is a solution for you where you could import Eudora Mail to Outlook easily. But first, let us understand the different Eudora versions first.

Eudora (Old & New) Mailbox Difference


Older versions of Eudora (up to 7) store all the mailbox files as an MBX file. Attachments are stored in a separate Attach folder, so attachments are often lost when converting from these outdated versions of Eudora.

Default Location of the mailbox in old Eudora versions is %appdata%\Qualcomm\Eudora

Eudora 8, which is based on Thunderbird stores emails in MBOX files (no-extension files). It keeps both emails and attachments in the same file.

Default Location of the mailbox in new Eudora versions is %appdata%\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default\


Mac Eudora stores all the mailbox files as an MBX file. Attachments are stored in a separate Attach folder.

Default Location on Mac is: Home\Document\Eudora\Mail
