Setup Instructions for Eudora

The following instructions will work for Eudora Light and Eudora Pro.

    Start Eudora

    Select the "Tools" menu and click on "Options"

    Click on the "Getting Started" icon.

    In the "POP Account" field, put in your Account

    NO QUOTES ARE NEEDED!

    Under "Real Name" put whatever you like.

    Click the "Personal Information" icon.

    If you have Catch-all e-mail, then in the "Return Address" field, put whatever address you wish at your domain. This has no effect on sending your mail. What this controls is what address people will see and what address they will reply to. You should not put your POP account in this field.

    If you have a Webmail individual POP account, you will have been given an e-mail address and POP account. Do not put your POP account in the "Return Address" field. Put your e-mail address.

    Click on the "Hosts" icon.

    In the "SMTP" field you will need to put in the SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) server used by your Internet provider. We cannot provide you with this address. Do not put your domain name here. See sending mail for more information.

    Click on the "Checking Mail" icon

    Choose whether to have your mail remain on your server or be moved to your hard disk. This is controlled by the "leave mail on server" box. (We very strongly recommend that you always take your mail off the server, i.e. make sure the "leave mail on server" button is UNchecked, or it can get backlogged very easily).

    Click on the "Sending Mail" icon (scroll down).

    Check the settings that you prefer.

For more information regarding Eudora Settings and other special features check out Qualcomm's Eudora site.

    Setup Instructions for Netscape Mail

    These instructions were compiled for the mail client that comes with Netscape 3.0.

      Start Netscape (If you're reading this, it's probably already running).

      Select the "Options" menu and click on "Mail and News Preferences"

      Click on the "Servers" section.

      In the "Incoming Mail (POP3) Server" field, put in your POP3 Server. This is the part of your POP Account that comes after the '@' symbol. Your POP3 Server will probably be either "domain.com" or "mail.domain.com" (replacing domain.com with your own domain name), depending on whether you have Unix mail or Webmail.

      NO QUOTES ARE NEEDED!

      In the "POP3 User Name" field, put your POP3 User ID. This is the first part of your POP Account, before the '@' sybmol. It will probably be either a web UserID, like "webXXxxx" or else a name like "pop" or "webmaster" or something.

      In the "SMTP" field you will need to put in the SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) server used by your Internet provider. We cannot provide you with this address. Do not put your domain name here. See sending mail for more information.

      Choose whether to have your mail remain on your server or be moved to your hard disk. This is controlled by the radio buttons "Removed from the server" and "left on the server." (We strongly recommend that you always take your mail off the server, i.e. make sure the "Removed from the server" button is checked, or it can get backlogged very easily).

      Click on the "Identity" tab.

      Under "Your Name" put whatever you like.

      If you have Catch-all e-mail, then in the "Reply-to-ddress" and "Your E-mail" fields, put whatever address you wish at your domain. This has no effect on sending your mail. What this controls is what address people will see and what address they will reply to. You should not put your POP account in this field.

      If you have a Webmail individual POP account, you will have been given an e-mail address and POP account. Do not put your POP account in the "Your E-mail" or "Reply-to-address" fields. Put your e-mail address.

    For more information regarding Netscape Mail and other special features check out Netscape's information page.



    Setup Instructions for Microsoft Exchange

    If you want to use Microsoft Exchange, then first make sure you have Internet Mail installed.

      Start Microsoft Exchange.

      Select Tools-->Services-->Internet Mail-->Properties

      For "Full Name," put whatever you like.

      For "E-mail address"

      If you have Catch-all e-mail, then in the "E-mail Address" field, put whatever address you wish at your domain. This has no effect on sending your mail. What this controls is what address people will see and what address they will reply to. You should not put your POP account in this field.

      If you have a Webmail individual POP account, you will have been given an e-mail address and POP account. Do not put your POP account in the "E-mail Address" field. Put your e-mail address.

      Mailbox information:

      In the "Internet Mail Server" field, put in your POP3 Server. This is the part of your POP Account that comes after the '@' symbol. Your POP3 Server will probably be either "domain.com" or "mail.domain.com" (replacing domain.com with your own domain name), depending on whether you have Unix mail or Webmail.

      NO QUOTES ARE NEEDED!

      In the "Account Name" field, put your POP3 User ID. This is the first part of your POP Account, before the '@' sybmol. It will probably be either a web UserID, like "webXXxxx" or else a name like "pop" or "webmaster" or something.

      Password: your password

      Now click on "Advanced Options." Where it says "Forward all outbound mail to the following mail server" you must put the SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) server used by your Internet provider. We cannot provide you with this address. Do not put your domain name here. Do not leave this field blank. See sending mail for more information.
