Error Messages in Eudora

I am getting error messages in my trusted Eudora whenever I go to delete a file. The message reads: Could not open the file c:\Program Files\Eudora\Mail\Trashbox.mbx. Cause: Access permission denied. File may be marked as read only or locked (13).

I am getting this same message for some of my other mailboxes as well including my inbox.

I found this message on Google:

Solution: An e-mail message in the Out mailbox has an invalid attachment. Select Window. The "bad" message should appear in the Window pull down menu. Open the message, review the "Attached:" field header and correct the "bad" attachment line. You may also need to review the Out mailbox. Check the "Attached:" field of any e-mail messages that are still queued.

I filed all the messages in my outbox figuring that would remove the offending attachment if there were one but I still get the same message.

I don't know if this is a factor but I have stored probably hundreds of thousands of emails in the mailboxes over the last 15 years. I am wondering if I have pressed Eudora to the maximum with all of the saved messages.

You may have.  Eudora support is long gone and the supposed port to Open Source ended up a port to Mozilla Thunderbird.  It appears that the Eudora Forums are still working: http://eudorabb.qualcomm.com/index.php
