Hi! We are on different time, so dont worry if responses are a bit slow :-)
I will get the exact info from my father.I know the old runs os9 with all the eudora mail visible.
The new is a 13´´ powerbook with 10.6, but i dont know the exact version. Will find out.
You are right!
The old Mac (I dont know the exact hardware name, but an old Powerbook with G4 processor). It runs 10.4.11. and his Eudora version is 6,2 (i think).
The new one runs 10.6.8 and is a Mac Book pro 7.1.
My father needs just the mails, he has all the attachements under control. Its about 200Mb og mail.
Does this help?
I was thinking maybe we could just put the file with all the Eudora mails in it in a dropbox or something and if it is possible get a Mac mail "database"/folder back?
I just need to know if t is possible and a price
It is entirely Possible Monna.. There a program called Eduora Mailbox cleaner.. Which we could run on the Old mac with 10.6.8 ( Called Snow Leaopard ) The Eudora mailbox cleaner, would transfer all his mail and contacts from Eudora.. Into the mac mail app. Then, we could export the mail from Mac mail.. and then import it all into Mac mail on the New computer.. ( Since mac mail will be the new system hes going to be using to access his email, it makes sense to put all his eudora email there, and then setup his email account with mac mail ) As far as price.. You have already set the price.. ( I cant see what that is on my end ) But to see the price you set, when logged into this justanswer account, at the top right click my account.. And then on the left it should show the deposit amount you made, and also for this question on the my question page.. You should see the question value ) For the proce you set, I can happily walk you through all the steps needed to accomplish the mail transfer. Or.. If you would like me to connect to your Fathers two computers.. Transfer the mail out of Eudora.. And then transfer the mail Into the new computer, and then also setup his mac mail ( with his old emails, and also connect his current email account to the program ) That could be done via a remote support session.. Though in reality, it would take 2 screen sharing sessions.. ( As I would have to first connect to computer A, export all the mail , And then connect a second time to computer B, and import the mail, and setup the email account ) Considering the time and labor, this is something I can do and would be willing to do.. Normally, considering the extra time involved with working on two computers, I would state that a bonus or tip is always welcome, for a job once it is completed successfully.. So from here, what we need to decide is would you rather I guide you through these steps via email. Or would you rather that I connect to your fathers Mac computers directly from here.. And perform the steps myself.. Thanks Monna, and will look forward to your replies. Dustin S.
( please wait to rate the service for now.. As of yet, we have not solved the issue.. Thank you )
I need to dicuss with my father, but i think the best thing would be for you to to it. The old computer is a 10.4.11, vold the cleaner work there to? Do you forsee any language problems? We have three characters you dont have. I dont know if you can see them when I type them here, but they are æ,ø and å.
I will happly pay for the advice up to now (thank you!), but please give me an indication for a fair price if you do it with the remote sessions. I have no clue as to how long time and the going hourly rate. I will just have to trust you :-).
No problem with the delay, this is something which has been an issue for my father for years so an hour or a day or two more wont matter.
Yor quote is very reasonable, so what I need to do now it to get my father with me on this. I am not at the same place as he is right now, but I will mail him and see him this week. So I suggest that I dont close this question, but get back to you as soon as he is ready. Than we can set a time when we are both awake and I can be at both machines for the time you need. I expect that will be on one of the weekdays next week, probably midday/early afternoon for you which is after work for me.
This will be of great help I hope and i promise to bonus you as suggested or more :-).
Is that ok?
On the "department of strage stories" my father was at one point calles "the father of internet in Norway" as he initiated the Arpanet here. I think the University of Oslo was the third Arpanet node or thereabouts after MIT and Honolulu (this might be inacurate). Anyhow, he was an ardent enthusiast for networks among academics and went from being a theoretical Physist to the head of the IT department in the early days of computing in the 60´s and 70´s.
Now his facutlies are slipping, but Mac, Iphone, Ipad - enad Eudroa - are things he is holding on to. It is the most natural thing in the world to want to help him. Being Internets sister in Norway and all ;-)
Will check in regularly. Have a great egening,
Wow, what a close knit world we find ourselves in.. Thank you for sharing what is truly an interesting retelling of your connection to that time in history. Norway was the first country outside the States to connect to the Arpanet, your father played an interesting and integral role in helping to develop the internet and the modern world as we know it. I wonder if he takes a certain pride in having shared a hand in creating some of the early technology, that would later lead to a technician in another country being able to transfer files from between two of his computers, from a connection several thousand miles away.. I look forward to hearing from you, and I realize its getting somewhat late in Norway but I hope you have also enjoyed your evening, and weekend. farvel, Dustin S.
Nice comments - its a small world.
The service has just closed down our conversation and I have contacted cust.service to open it again. I try this now to see if it still works. I have spoken to my father who thinks this is a very good solution, so all we have to do now is set a time. For me all eveings (which is days your time) exept tuesday is fine. Ca you give me a time which is good for you? After 18:00 hours Oslo time would be graeat!
Hi! I was trying to answer you, but kept getting "access denied". Happened when I tried to get to the homepage too, but now I am finally getting through (tried to reply to the mail-alert, but that has obviously not worked either).Anyway: Tomorrow is difficult, but is it possible to do the converting and transfer thursday 18:30 my time? Then I have time to get from work and pick up my fathers Macs. Sorry I didn't mail you yesterday, just all kind of things got in the way). If thursday is not good we try tomorrow...:-)Monna
I will, but I am pretty sure thursday will work,
Sorry to bother you with another reply then - just to make sure we can connect: You can reach me onXXX@XXXXXX.XXX if some stupid technical problem turns up...
And you dont need a long reply to this one,
Im going to estimate about 2 hours time involved for us both, from the point at which we sit down with both macs present, and start the initial attempt to connect mac 1. It may not take the full two hours, indeed it could take half that time. But I want to allow that much time in case we do run into the connection issues that I mentioned.
Other then that Monna, I hope your week is going well, and I hope your having a lovely evening this Summer in Norway.
As teenagers go my son decided it was about time to inform me today of the formal spectacle for finishing collage (I dont know what you call it, but is is the usual speches, handing over of diplomas itc.) - tomorrow. I am really sorry and wonder if it would be a problem for you to to it friday instead.
You pick the time anytime between 18 and 23 my time. If this is difficult I can be back and by the macs at appr. 20.30-21:00 tomorrow if that works for better for you.
And just so you are aware (i have informed support your end):I keep getting access denied most of the time. Sgain if you you should, but dont hear from me just mail me atXXX@XXXXXX.XXX as I might not get throught to you.
Rain today, hope wherever you are in the US is better,
Great - i will be as fast as I can and tell you as soon as I am in. If you dont hear anything before 18, please e-mail me. I have tried to get into the system appr. 20 times before finally now. Not at all frustrated with you, but a bit with the system...
Logging out for today, but I know you have to reply - will ignore ;-)
Hi! Finally - have been trying to log on for the last half hour.
Please mail me if I dont resond quickly from now on - I am right here, just getting "access denied" whatever pages I try on your site.
How do we proceed? My fathers Macs are right beside me
