I can't find the command in Eudora to copy all outgoing mails into a specified folder. I'd like to keep copies of all mails I send for reference, but I can't figure how to do it. Any ideas?

I think the difficulty of your question depends on whether the default folder for saving outgoing mail is acceptable, or do you need to be able to define a different folder on your drive.

Eudora has a built-in feature for saving outgoing mail to a document called "out" that lives in the Eudora folder in your system folder.  Select <Settings...> from the <Special> menu.  The dialog box that appears has a scrolling menu on the left.  Scroll down to <Sending Mail> and select it.  Several check boxes will appear.  The 6th one says KEEP COPIES OF OUTGOING MAIL.  You want this to be checked if you want Eudora to keep copies of mail for reference.  Every message you send gets written to this file called <out>, which can be read by any word program.  I've found that before long the <out> file gets too big for my SimpleText app, and I use MS Word to read it.

I don't know if there is a way to specify a different destination folder for copying mail (I use Eudora Light, and there isn't with mine), or you may want to save individual messages as separate files.  In either case, I can't help you.  But if your goal is simply to have a readable archive to reference every message you send, the above should do 'ya.

This is a great start, but it would be even better if I could save outgoing messages as individual files, if this is possible (I'm using Eudora Lite too).
