    Odd Eudora problem

    Frequently when downloading mail, Eudora opens a blank window/folder with the Microsoft symbol in its "title." Interestingly, this only happens on one machine and not on two others, but I have had it happen occasionally on another old XP machine.

    I had thought it was a problem with a broken filter creating a ghost folder but the filters look good. All Eudora installs are identical in configuration and filters.

    It's not a major issue, just an annoyance.*Tongue

    Any ideas?

    Your response and experience is very heartening, especially if you updated Windows 10 after December 2017 or January 2018.

    Perhaps I should re-install Eudor again in Windows 10 for another try.

    On installation in Windows 10, did you place the program files in a C: root directory, and the Eudora mailboxes and other folders in a separate folder in your computer's Documents area?

    Eudora Error Message

    I tried one suggestion

    > Use Windows Explorer to set Eudora to: Run as Administrator

    which did nothing.

    Then I edited the shortcut that calls Eudora to Run as Administrator, and that does work,

    Odd Eudora problem

    Not sure what causes it, but you're not alone. I've seen this bug since version 6 shipped, and on three OSs (XP, 7 and now 10). It happens to me about 1 in 10 times when I check for mail.
