If you are planning on downloading those message archive zips, this is
important, otherwise you don't have to read..

I tested them by downloading, and realized they were UNIX textfiles. I
translated them, and rezipped them (they were zipped with the old zip) and
now they are about 350K zipped.

I have some good news for Eudora users. You can load any mail file as a
mailbox for easy viewing. I tried this with the sonic mail file, and it works
just great. Write me if anyone wants to know how.
