Configure an Email Account in Eudora

Tutorials / How To's > Configuring Email Clients
This tutorial assumes that you’ve already created your new email account in your web hosting, typically through your hosting control panel. Now let’s learn how to setup that new email account in Eudora.
 
  1. Start by clicking the Tools > Options.
  2. The Options window appears.
  3. Enter the Name as you would like it to appear in the From field of outgoing emails.
  4. Now enter the new email address.
  5. Enter your Incoming Mail Server (POP3). Your Mail Server setting will have been provided to you in your welcome email and often times is simply mail.yourdomain.com.
  6. Now enter the email username as provided to you by your hosting provider. This may be the entire email address or just the username prefix.
  7. Enter your Outgoing SMTP Server settings.
  8. Make sure the SMTP Authentication box is checked. This means that Eudora will login to your mail server even when sending emails (not just receiving), ensuring that you are the only one that can send emails from your account.
  9. Click OK when finished.
  10. That’s it! We’ve successfully setup an email account and can now start sending and receiving emails to and from that account from Eudora.
  11. Click the Personalities tab. Right-click the account we just setup then click Properties.
  12. The Properties window opens/ this is where you can make changes to your email account, your real name display, server settings, etc. if you ever have to. Click OK.
  13. Right click the account again then click New to setup additional email accounts.
  14. Remember that you also have to create that email address in your hosting account before it will work.
