SMTP Authentication (e-mail username) is required to send e-mail.

 

Creating new e-mail accounts (personalities):

In Eudora, e-mail accounts are referred to as personalities.  If you're a user with more than one e-mail account, Eudora can manage them for you.

To add extra e-mail accounts (personalities) in Eudora, follow these steps:

On the Toolbar, click Special and select Settings from the menu.

 

Personalities (Additional E-mail Accounts):

In Eudora, e-mail accounts are referred to as personalities.  If you're a user with more than one e-mail account, Eudora can manage them for you.

Click Personalities on the left to see the screen as shown below.

Personality to Configure:

"Personality" is another name for "Extra e-mail account".

Click the New button to add an extra Personality (e-mail account).

After picking a Personality from the fist field at the top, all the fields below it apply to that Personality.  All the remaining fields closely resemble the "Getting Started" screen for the dominant Personality.

 

Checking Mail:

User Name  =  Enter your e-mail username (everything before the @).

Mail Server  =  Incoming Server The Incoming (POP3) mail server usually follows this format:  mail.ispname.com (or .net).  Replace the "ispname.com (or .net)" with your ISP's name.

Sending Mail:

Real Name  =  Enter your name or a nickname.

SMTP Server  =  Outgoing Server The Outgoing (SMTP) mail server usually follows this format: mail.ispname.com (or .net).  Replace the "ispname.com (or .net)" with your ISP's name.

Allow Authorization  =  This must be checked to send mail.  SMTP authentication helps deter people from spamming you.  It's as simple as entering a username and password.  Without SMTP authentication, you will not be able to send e-mail.
