What does the err "maildrop lock busy! is another session active?" mean. How do you correct it? Message persists despite reinstall of Eudora.On another Mac,using the same program and isp, there is no problem.

It means that you must contact your ISP's tech support and have them unlock your mail box. Some ISP's have an auto-unlock feature, some do not. Since you must call them anyway, you might as well ask them why you can receive mail on another machine.

-good luck

Tech support says small error in Eudora mail header will lock up mailbox as described whereas Netscape Communicator v4 is less picky and therefore mystery explained.Deletion of the offending message via Communicator cured Eudora's problem.
