|Open the Eudora program. If this is the first time using Eudora, it will launch a "New Account Wizard" to configure your email account for you (so you will just need your account username, password, and mail server names from your New Account QuickStart).
If the New Account Wizard does not launch, or if you have used Eudora previously, you will just need to enter a few settings manually in order to get Eudora up and running. Here are the instructions to do so:
|1.||Click on the "Tools" menu, then select "Options...". In the Options window, click on "Getting Started".
If you are on a Macintosh, you'll have to click on the "Special" menu, and then select "Settings", and then click on "Getting Started".
|2.||Fill in the boxes in the Options (or Settings, on Mac) window as per the below:
|3.||Click on the "Checking Mail" icon. Enter:
|4.||You can also click on the Incoming Mail icon to configure miscellaneous options for incoming mail. If you are checking mail from multiple locations, say from home and at work, you might want to check the "leave mail on server" option, but if you do so please make sure you also check "Delete messages from server after X days" (where X is the number of days you want to leave your email on the server after you've downloaded it).
If you don't set your email program to delete the old messages off the server periodically, your mailbox on the server will fill up and not be able to accept any new mail if it goes over its default size quota.
Make sure "Passwords" is selected under "Authentication".
|5.||Now click on the "Sending Mail" icon. Some defaults for the "Sending Mail" screen should have been copied over from your previous settings. Make sure you have your email address in the "Return Address" box, and make sure that "scully.mintsol.com" server name is entered in the "SMTP Server" box, and that "NEVER" is entered under "Secure Sockets when Sending" option. The other options can be checked or unchecked according to your preference.|
|6.||Now click "OK" to save your changes, and you are done.|
