Dang-nabbit.  Just a few weeks ago I decided I needed to move away from Eudora.
I uninstalled Office 2003 and bought a subscription to Office 365 and began 
the search for a tool to move all my Eudora email archives to Outlook PST.  

I settled on .  It failed until I cranked
its Java .vmoptions to 12 gig of RAM.  It's very slow...  as a single-threaded
Java app, it took at least two days for my i7 to crunch my 7 gigs of Eudora 
folders. The PST is about twice as large.  

Examining it in Outlook, it felt very slow compared to Eudora on the same 
machine.  Slow to search, slow to view.  Made me think I'd need to break up 
the PST into dozens of chunks.  I'm still using Eudora.
