Unless the Mac version of Eudora is wildly different from Windows versions, each mailbox/folder is a set of two files on you HDD. One's an index file, the other's the actual email, which is stored in plain old text format.

If you just need to retrieve information, you could use a search utility or an editor.

Will Eudora still run under Leopard or whichever OS version you're running? If so, you could also keep a copy installed but don't feed it any config info that'd point it at a "real" email account. You could then access your old emails just as before w/o worrying about Eudora messing with anything current.

Or to make it a step more useful, give it the SMTP (ie, mail sending) settings for a valid account (maybe a gmail account or whatever) so that you could at need send mail from Eudora but not receive. Even if your new email program doesn't understand Eudora mailboxes, you could forward mail to yourself to get it from Eudora to the new system.
