Format of Eudora TOC file

Posted on 2004-08-09

While there are a few online references to the format of Eudora's TOC file in ancient versions of Eudora, I haven't found any that document the 6.x file format of the TOC file. Does anyone know the format of this file? I'd like to read it into a program. Sample code would be most excellent.

While those folks have obviously figured it out, they don't publish the format. I have contacted them to see if they are willing to share, but I'm not holding my breath.

I have determined that the basic layout of the TOC file has not changed much from the earlier versions... this is good because the earlier versions have been decoded, and this gives a good head start in figuring it all out.

The beatles forever people never contacted me back.

The answers at:

appear to still be fairly current with the 6.x version of Eudora. I sure wish the folks at Qualcomm would switch over to XML or something.

Anyway, I can't give point to a wrong answer and there isn't a correct one here except for mine...
