When I run Eudora on my MAC, a pop message comes up and say "it needs 2700K to run, available only 2100K" but it still runs OK.

Is there a way to increase the free memory (of course, not putting in more memory.)?

thanks.

Select the Eudora application icon with a single click and choose "Get Info" from the file menu. There will be allocated memory settings in the resulting window.

To increase free memory, close all open applications.  If that's not enough, you should decrease the memory used by System by not loading unneeded extensions and control panels.
That should be done with the Extension Manager.

You can also use Virtual Memory if your physical memory is not very large. This can decrease the memory requirements of applications while at the same time providing you with more RAM.

But it sounds as though you need to adjust the memory assigned to Eudora as Weed has already explained.

Anwer is as above. The error message he got is a result of memory allocation, not free system memory.
