"Like many people, I started out reading my mail on Unix systems using mail clients such as mh and xmh, and then shifted to Windows-based clients such as Eudora or Netscape Messenger. When I got a new laptop about a year ago and decided to run Linux on it, I found that I could not abandon the large amount of mail I had built up under Eudora. So I installed Windows under VMware, copied my Eudora files over, and still had access to my accumulated mail. I also have a tape somewhere that contains all the mail I had accumulated under Unix from years before."
