Greetings Folks:

I am putting the finishing touches on a partitioned hard disk and I've run 
into trouble. I have XP in C:, files in D:, and applications, including 
Eudora, in E:.

I have placed Eudora, using a freshly downloaded copy from Qualcomm, in E: 
and all permanent Eudora files, such as .mbx, filters, addresses, settings, 
etc. in D:

As the file transfer took place during installation, the process placed the 
permanent files several layers deep in the XP hierarchical file structure 
on D: which may be causing aberrations in Eudora's operation.

I have had trouble with munged fonts, inability to select a font size, 
disparity of fonts styles that don't follow my saved selection ( e.g. 
select System, get Verdana), and faulty wraparounds in the message text and 
can't seem to work around them. I am using the sponsored Eudora 6.2

I wonder now if I should have created my own file names in D: and moved the 
critical mailbox, addresses and setting manually into the newly created 
folders and files.

I have tried a fresh download of Eudora, but using the same procedure I get 
the same result. No help, in other words.

Anybody had experience with a similar problem in Eudora or other mail manager?
