You have to search for in.mbx, or any other mbx or toc file. You have
to search everywhere and turn off hide system files. Then you have to
move those files all mbx, toc and a bunch of other files to a new
directory under user data or some such.
It might be simplest to copy all Eudora related files to a flsah drive.
Then make sure you delete all Eudora files from the hard drive. Make
sure all Eudora related info is erased from the registry (if there is
any). Finally reinstall Eudora and note the directory (let's call it
newmail so we know which directory its) where the mailboxes are created.
Create a new SUB-directory of that newmail directory called oldmail.fol
(it has to have the dotfol extension so Eudora will recognize it as a
subdirectory for mailboxes), and copy all the files off the flashdrive
Now you can move emails from the old mailboxes into whatever new ones
you want them to be.
This may sound convoluted (and it is), but I think it should work.

As long as you do not attempt to keep user data (mail, settings, etc.)
in the system "program files" folder tree, where Windows,
to better protect against malware,
no longer allows applications to write or update any files.
You can keep programs and data together elsewhere,
although it's still a bad idea.

I have found those mailboxes. Now I use Eudora enough fine but when it
downloads the emails it is very, very slower than with Windows XP.

Are you saying that Windows 7 isn't as efficient as Windows XP?
Who would have imagined such a thing? ;-)
Somewhere in all those millions of lines of code,
in the entire system of everything you are running under that hood,
whether all from Microsoft or parts from many vendors,
plus layers of networking all the way from inside the box to an ISP,
there might be something that can be tuned up or turned off,
but I don't know how to find that out, from over here.
I'll look forward to hearing any breaking news as time goes by,
and best wishes for happy virtual travel in your new SUV :)

I never have told it. I tell you that with Windows 7 I don't succeed
to installa every program.
For example i am not able to install a program that a friend of mine
has made for me with Visual Basic some years ago.
Then .... I am not able to install Power Translator 12. It is was born
in the 2008.
