User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/2009090216 Ubuntu/9.04 (jaunty) Firefox/3.0.14 Build Identifier: Eudora 8.0 Beta 7 I tried importing from a Eudora 184.108.40.206 installation to Eudora 8.0 Beta 7, and though the import process completed with no errors, several filters were not imported properly, and the Thunderbird diagnostics were not helpful. Eudora lets you specify no Header option, or else one that's typed in. The filter can end up being illegal. Eudora installation is from my wife, and since there's no good way to organize the rules, she creates dummy filters, typically with lots of asterisks in the name, as separators. In those cases, they're not real rules, and I've seen that the "Header:" field in Eudora 7 is blank, or else contains ******. In cases like this, the msgFilterRules.dat ends up containing a condition where the "contains" shows up at the end, after the string, rather than before. The complete line can look like: condition="OR (\"******\",contains,)" Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Import from a Eudora 7.x installation where the Header field is set to something with a asterisk in it. 2. 3. Expected Results: I would have expected that the Eudora 8.x importer would have correctly formatted the corresponding "condition" line in the msgFilterRules.dat file. If it couldn't have figured out how to fix the line, then I would have expected a list of offending filters so that they could be manually fixed. As it was, it took me several hours to figure out what the problem was and how it was caused.
Filters like this should probably be skipped by the importer, though in my tests the filter imports just fine.
