X1 indexing OLD Eudora folders - not current path

Postby PRFreimann » Tue Sep 18, 2007 6:56 am

X1 ® Enterprise Client Version 5.6.2
(Build 3418) (Created: Tue Jan 23 10:21:25 PST 2007)
--- and ---
Eudora 7.0.1.9

Apparently when I reinstalled X1 on a new PC, X1 'found' my Eudora files but it found OLD backup copies and not the current file path. How can I tell X1 where the Eudora file / folders are that I want indexed?

Also I do not have any X1 icons in Eudora. Do I need them as long as Eudora 7 uses X1 search technology?

5.6.4 doesn't support Eudora! HORRORS!

I've used X1 since it came out and love it.

With my problems above I thought I should update to the most current client (5.6.4) and then read in the Release Notes that you've dropped support for Eudora!

Can I go backwards to 5.6.2? Maybe it didn't support Eudora either? and that's why I wasn't seeing my current email?

What are my options?
Google Desktop - I used to have it but it locked up too often.

Greetings to an old X1'er!

I've briefly used Eudora v6 three years back, so if anyone else have more Eudora experience pls give us a hand here!


-The last X1 version to support Eudora is v5.6.3

-You can download XEC v5.6.3 here:

X1 v5.6.3 (Build 3438)


My understanding of Eudora 7 using X1 search technology, is that X1 is an Eudora program module, only indexes for Eudora 7 emails. Hence you don't need X1 Enterprise Client to be installed in this specific case.

Hope this works out for you!

Eudora - X1 6.5.3

Postby PRFreimann » Thu Sep 20, 2007 11:13 am

Hi Mr. Wong,

Thanks - yes Eudora 7 does use X1 for searching and it's fast. BUT it's nice to have one package that gives you all your search.

If I were to download the X1 version 6.5.3, WHERE would I tell it to find the Eudora files - or does it locate them on it's own. Or is there somewhere in the installation / setup to tell it?

I thought by downloading the current version I could tell it but actually lost the capability to index Eudora.

Suppose you've already got Eudora v7 installed, and after you've installed XEC v5.6.3 it's supposed to auto-detect and index for Eudora emails...

Have not tried this combination myself, anyone else have experience with this combo of software?

Hi PRFreimann,

Please note that while we do "NOT" support the indexing of Eudora email (beginning with v5.6.4 - build 3470), we can provide you with steps to get this enabled. Also, as this relates to Eudora, we won't fix bugs, work support tickets or add any new features -- use at your own risk!

Here are the steps for exposing the Eudora scanner within X1:

1. Close X1 using File > Exit (and close Eudora if it's open)

2. Locate the file: X1IndexService.ini

This file is found in your X1 index folder, which is located here by default:

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\X1 Desktop Search\
(**If you do not see the Local Settings folder, then from Windows Explorer, click on Tools > Folder Options > View and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is selected**)

3. Double-click the X1IndexService.ini file to open the file for editing

4. Directly under the [General] section add the following line:
Eudora=1

5. Close and save the X1IndexService.ini file

6. Launch X1

7. Go to Tools > Options > Email > Eudora and verify that the settings are correct. You can also click on "Select Folders To Scan" to verify that the correct folders are selected for indexing.

Again, please note that support for Eudora is no longer provided beginning with v5.6.4 (build 3470).

Thanks.
