Description

11 years ago
The problem is that the Penelope importer for Windows Eudora does not import various data, such as:

SSL type (incoming server)
SSL type (SMTP)
Server Port (SMTP)

Check for mail every xx minutes
Check mail at startup (if Eudora is not set to 0 minutes, this should be set ON)
Leave mail on server days
Empty trash on Exit
Signature associated with Personality (signatures are not imported at all, actually)


Additionally, when the SMTP server is imported, it is not associated with the account that is imported. Instead the imported account is associated with the 'default' Penelope SMTP server.


To reproduce:
- Set up Eudora, setting options for the following settings (in addition to server names, real name, email address, etc.):

SSL type (incoming server)
SSL type (SMTP)
Server Port (SMTP) (Use Submission port)
Check for mail every xx minutes
Leave mail on server days
Empty trash on Exit

- Import settings into Penelope
- Note the above settings were not imported.

If I remember right, TB2Beta2 at least imports the "Server Port", "Check for mail every xx minutes" and "Leave mail on server days" correctly. But please check yourself.

Situation is improved with patch submitted to bug #368363. Framework is in place for easier future improvements of settings importing provided there is a good corollary between a given Eudora setting and a corresponding Mozilla setting. Re-assigning back to Matt Dudziak in the hopes that he assist with this by coming up with a list of settings that he'd like to see imported.

For each setting I need the following:
* Mac Eudora setting ID
* Windows Eudora setting name
* Mozilla setting name (helpful, but optional - I can research this)
* Any differences between settings values for Mac vs. Windows setting (i.e. is logic is reversed, do the two platforms count in different directions for the setting, etc.)

Even a small list would be helpful :-). Even easiest would be testing Penelope 8.0.0b3 and declaring that everything critical is already being imported :-D.

As far as I am concerned, the important Personality information is being imported. I'm calling this bug Fixed. If there are specific items people think should be imported (that currently are not being) please open individual bugs.

Closing as Fixed.
