Thunderbird normal behaviour is to get back the attachements files with the mail
during the import processus.
I successfully tested this behaviour several times.

You should attach to this bug an eudora mailbox with one or two mails whose
attachment are not correctly imported in order to help this bug to be fixed.

What is the version of thunderbird?
In 0.9, it may be unable to import normally not related to the character
currently used by the attached file name.

duplicate bug95613?

Not a TB auto-migration bug -> Core:MailNews:Import

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

dupe of bug 301188?

Possibly. I only started looking at Eudora importer related issues relatively recently, so I'm not aware of the full history of this bug. As stated it seems more general than bug 301188, but then again as stated it seems like it was fixed at some point - or was invalid to begin with (as the current code base does not appear to have this bug).

RESOLVED EXPIRED seems fine to me. I'd expect any future bugs about attachments when importing Eudora mail, would probably deserve a new bug and more specific steps to reproduce.
