How to configure Eudora to get your E-mail


You can download Eudora from their site, Eudora.com.
If you see the following image when you open Eudora, go to the New Eudora account tutorial.  This Tutorial will walk through the editing of Eudora account settings.
This is only displayed if you've never set up an e-mail account in Eudora before

  1. To access the existing account settings, click on "Tools", and then "Options".
    In the Tools Menu, choose Options
  2. For the "Getting Started" section, verify that your information is correct. Your Real name can be whatever you want to appear on your outgoing mails.
    1. Make sure that your incoming mail server is mail.your_domain.com.
    2. The Return address is not required.
    3. Also make sure that your Login Name is your entire e-mail address, like john@your_domain.com.
    4. The SMTP Server is also mail.your_domain.com unless your ISP blocks external SMTP servers. In that case, you MUST find out your ISP's outgoing mail server and use it.
    5. Our Servers do Allow authentication on outgoing mail.
    Getting Started Section
  3. The Checking Mail section is mostly inherited from the Getting Started section.  The rest is personal preference.
    Checking Mail section
  4. The Incoming Mail section should have the following options selected:
    1. The Server configuration: POP.
    2. Do not leave mail on the server, it just takes up your storage space, and storage space on a High end web server is valuable space; Back it up on a CD or Hard disk if you want to keep a copy.
    3. The other options are personal preference.
    4. The Authentication style is Passwords.
    Incoming Mail section
  5. The Sending Mail section contains
    1. Your Return Address is the e-mail address (like email@your_domain.com )
    2. Leave the Domain to add to unqualified addresses blank.
    3. The SMTP Server is also mail.your_domain.com unless your ISP blocks external SMTP servers. In that case, you MUST find out your ISP's outgoing mail server and use it.
    4. Allow authentication, Immediate send, and Send on check.
    Sending mail section
  6. The other sections are personal preference, and based on individual situations/connections.
  7. You should click on OK to finish and check your mail.
  8. Again, many major ISPs now block the default POP3 Sending port (SMTP port 25). If you have difficulty sending mail, or cannot connect to the server, you will not be able to use your Domain's outgoing mail server (mail.your_domain.com ).   You will need to contact your ISP for their outgoing mail server address and information to send your mail.
