You are correct - there is a disk issue - but only with 1 account - all other accounts are fine and I can copy them.  When I try to copy my account to another box, I get error -50 can't be copied.  There is probably come corruption but it's hard to find repair utilities for MAC OS 9 still around.
Thanks for the help.  If I can find some utility to repair the file and let me copy it - i will use the command you sent.

You can forward the nem mail to the new server using the SIMS router, and you can simply move the mbox files off the Mac to the nex machine.  You will have to change the line endings, however.  Easiest way is to open the mbox files in BBEdit and then resave them with new EOL markers to be compatible with the new server.

To be fair, it was highly unlikely that SIMS corrupted your account, it's more likey the disk or the OS had a failure.
