My Eudora V. 5.2 somehow has 2 paths to the attach file, but appears to use only one. However, it used to use the other.
It also has given me much trouble sending and receiving pictures---they are blank frames with a red x or blacked out. When I forwarded some embedded pics the other day, all the recipients saw were big black frames, but if I (as I did later) pasted the picures into a new email, the recipients were able to view them. (1 exceptions: 1 recipient only got 4 of the 6 pics--2 were blacked out.)
I completely uninstalled my 5.2 version, checked the registry for left-over "Qualcomm" and "Eudora" entries (there were none). Suspecting Eudora file corruption, I now installed the 6.0 free Version. There were still 2 paths for the attach file and I have not yet had time to determine how this version is dealing with images. It's fine with text emails. Also in this new ad-supported version, the file Eudora has always used to store addresses (NNdbase.txt) is missing and search does not find it...even though the address book is working peerfectly.
Since the reinstall of a completely new version (with my original version completely removed to all indications), my question is: is my only solution at this point, to wipe out my HD and start from scratch again. I mean does the fact that this new version of Eudora is not quite what is should be mean an XP system file is corrupt? And if a system file is not corrupt, what can I do?
