Hi

I try to open a new mail in Eudora and it pops up an Error Message:
Could not open C:\internet\...\eudora\imap\dominant\inbox\inbox.mbx for writing.

This is the only instance of Eudora that is running.

Any advise.

Thanks

The only reference I could find to this error was fixed by upgrading to the newest version. Are you using the newest already?
