Mac Performa 6205CD, OS 8. Since installing OS 8 (new upgrade for Emailer Lite from 1.0v4 (?) came with OS 8), email is numbered consecutively each time I download it; thus, in one month it appears that I received 663 items; however, application did not recognize that email was downloaded and generally deleted and it eventually closed the mailbox, informing those writing me that the mailbox was full. Actually I had about 10 items in the mailbox, no more!
I have since closed out of busiest listserve, but I had to have ISP delete all email of 663 items. When I restarted, email was OK, but it still numbers consecutively (I am now up to #68 or so) and it is just a question of time before the mailbox will register as full and close!.
Do I have to reinstall from the CD (OS 8)? If I do, how do I save mail folders and addressbook? I have tried Apple and Claris, both of whom are absolutely useless! They said would call back--sometime or other.
