How to configure an email account in Eudora

The purpose of this tutorial is to show you how to setup an email account in the desktop email program Eudora so that you will be able to send and receive email.

For the purpose of this tutorial, we will assume that you have already created a new email account in your cPanel. If you don't know how to do this, please see the tutorial named: How to create a POP email account.

Begin by opening the Eudora program on your desktop, then:

  • Click on the link for Tools located in the top menu.
  • At the bottom of the drop-down list, click on Options to open the Options window.
  • In the first box, enter the name as you would like it to appear in the *from* field of outgoing emails.
  • In the second box, enter your new complete email address.
  • In the next box, enter the email username (this will be your email address).
  • The last box is for your outgoing SMTP server setting (both the incoming and outgoing server settings are For example:
  • Make sure the SMTP Authentication box is checked (Allow Authentication).

SMTP authentication means that Eudora will log into your mail server to send mail as well as when receiving mail to ensure that you are the only one that can send emails from your account. Click OK when you are done.

You are now back at the main screen and have successfully added this account to Eudora. You are now ready to begin receiving and sending email from this account.

  • In the left hand column, click on the Personalities tab (under the folder list).
  • Right click the account we just set up to open a pop-up window and click on Properties to open the Properties window.
  • This where you can make changes to your email account. Things such as real name to display, server settings and other things if you ever need to.
  • Click OK to return to the main screen again.

Adding more accounts:

  • Right click on the account we just set up again then from the menu, click on New.
  • This is where you can come to set up additional email accounts. Click cancel to return to the main screen.

You now know how to set up email accounts in Eudora. Remember that you first have to create an email address in your hosting account before it will work. For additional assistance, contact us by submitting a support ticket.
