    I opened Eudora as normal and all the inbox contents have disappeared.
    How do I restore them please? I have the in.mbx, the inmbx001, 002 and
    the equivalent tocs. so I think I can do this, just can't remember
    how.

    Close Eudora and read this:

    "How can I backup and restore my In and Out mailboxes"
    http://eudora.com/techsupport/kb/2651hq.html

    Also archived for posterity at:

    By the way, first delete "in.toc" -- Eudora will then attempt
    to create a new index, to whatever exists of the "In" box as it was.

    Keep In/Out/Trash small -- move items to other mailboxes ASAP,
    to reduce both probability and consequence of crashes.

    [re losing contents of "In" box;
    renaming the "001" and "002" backups was already covered]

    Do you happen to also "leave mail on POP server"?

    If so, you can also delete your "lmos.dat" file(s),
    to cause re-download of all messages still on the POP server.

    For this very reason, I usually recommend routinely
    leaving messages on the POP server for at least a few days;
    then any local loss (even a hard disk crash) has less impact,
    because that much past incoming mail can always be recovered,
    or one can even use another computer and a "webmail" application
    to handle it. Both Yahoo and Gmail also feature
    free "get POP mail from other accounts,"
    by default not deleting from the POP server.

    Nowadays I also route all my incoming email
    (by unconditional forwarding at the POP server)
    through a Gmail account, from which Eudora downloads it,
    providing both long-term backup and easy web access from anywhere.

    Gmail has a new feature allowing re-downloading of a limited
    amount of recent mail (30 days) to any POP client:
    http://mail.google.com/support/bin/a...y?answer=47948
    (you can also reset the account to re-download everything
    *ever* received, but nothing in between these extremes).
