I have tried repeatedly to put a copy of the Eudora address book from
Home Computer and Office Desktop over to Laptop computer running
Eudora, same version (paid), all running same version of Windows XP
SP2. Copying the files nndbase.txt and nndbase.toc, plus the Nickname
folder, to the appropriate directory gets me nowhere.
I've posted on this newsgroup that we did it manually by printing out
the address book, then having someone do the entries in the laptop,
and what a waste of time that was. I tried it at home, and just
selecting some (not all) entries in the Home address book yielded a
1.68 M file and 68 page print out which choked my small printer.
Any e-mail client program should have an address book that is easily
portable to a laptop. Indeed, a really first class program would have
an easy synch method, just like my lowly Palm address [really only a
phone] book synchs between the same three computers. But, apparently
Qualcomm and its Eudora unit just don't care or have never considered
Some time ago I even e-mailed their Tech Support, and their answer was
essentially the same and did not work.
There's nothing in the Help files, and apparently nothing in their
"Knowledge Base" on this subject, either.
The answer may be to ditch my two desktops and get a REALLY good
laptop for all three uses, but that seems to be "throwing out the baby
with the bathwater." Besides, I do some digital photo work (see,
~dc1999/) and my 21 inch SnycMaster CRT at
home is just grand.
My Palm won't do the trick because e-mail addresses are not
"clickable" in the Palm, although maybe there's a plug in. If you
live in your Palm and it can double as a cell phone, you're welcome to
it, but most of my work is at an office or at home.
If anyone knows the answer to this really simple problem, or if by
chance a Qualcomm person is reading this, I'd surely like an answer or
Thanks very much
