As you can see there are several fields that must be filled into the ‘Options’ pane. If you are doubt what settings to use, collect them from your mail service provider.

Here is a short description for each filed in Eudora mail options:

Real name:
Enter your name as you like to appear in your outgoing mails.

Return address:
Enter your return e-mail address. This is the address where you will receive replies sent to others.

Mail server (Incoming):
Put there the mail server that you are using. Typically it is’ pop.your-domain’. (It could be different like mail.your-domain.com according to the mail server setup. Contact your mail service provider if the default ‘pop’ is not working)

Login name:
Enter your login name for the e-mail. Usually it is your full e-mail address like ‘email@your-domain.com‘. However some servers are configured just to use the account name.

SMTP server (Outgoing):
If your mail server supports outgoing mails in this filed you should set it like smtp.your-domain.com. If you are using your ISP outgoing server it could be smtp.YourISP.com .If that is the case check with the ISP about that.

In most cases your server will require authentication so check this option ‘Allow authentication’ at the bottom and press OK.

Now, your mail account is setup and you can see it under the personal tab.
