Eudora Light is one of the easiest Email programs to setup. There are only a few details that you need to enter before you can start sending and receiving emails.

Note: You do not need to be connected to the Internet in order to configure Eudora

Setup Options

Once you have Eudora open, Click onto the Tools menu and then select Options from the bottom

1. Options - Getting Started

On this screen, enter in your POP Account details. This is your ‘username’ followed by ‘@mail.nor.com.au’. eg, username@mail.nor.com.au

You can also enter in a ‘Real Name’ here. This is the name that is shown next to your email address when somebody receives one of your emails.

Click onto the 'Personal Info' icon to continue

2. Options - Personal Info

Your Pop Account details, and Real Name information are copied across from the previous screen.

The only inoformation you need to enter here is your return address. Your Return Address is the same as your Email Address.
eg, username@nor.com.au

Click onto the 'Hosts' icon to continue

3. Options - Hosts

You should see your Pop Account details again at the top of this screen. The new information you must enter here is the SMTP.

The SMTP is the server that your outgoing email is sent through. Enter in mail.nor.com.au for the SMTP.

Do not need to enter anything into the ‘Ph’ or ‘Finger’ sections.

Click onto the 'Checking Mail' icon to continue

4. Options - Checking Mail

You should see your Pop Account details again at the top of this screen.

  • If you have, for example, 10 minutes in the ‘Check for mail every ___ minutes’, Eudora will automatically check for new mail every 10 minutes while you are connected to the Internet.

  • If you do not want to type in your email password every time you check for mail, place a ‘tick’ into ‘Save Password’

  • Ensure that you have a ‘dot’ in ‘Passwords’ underneath the ‘Authentication style’ down the bottom.

    Click onto the 'Sending Mail' icon to continue

  • 5. Options - Sending Mail

    You should see your Pop Account details again at the top of this screen.

    Queued Messages:
    If you want to ‘Queue’ messages rather then sending them immediately, remove the ‘tick’ from ‘Immediate Send’. This way, you can write your email while you are not connected to the Internet, and then ‘send queued messages’ after you are connected.

    ‘Send Queued Messages’ is selected from the ‘File’ menu.

    Click onto the 'Attachments' icon to continue

    6. Options - Attachments

    Encoding Method:
    The encoding method that should be used is ‘Mime’. Ensure that there is a ‘dot’ next to Mime at the top of this screen.

    Attachment Directory:
    The attachments that you receive in your email will be saved, by default to a folder called ‘Attach' sitting underneath your Eudora folder. Usually this would be set to: ‘ C:\Eudora\Attach‘

    If you do not specify a different attachment folder, the ‘C:\Eudora\Attach’ folder will be used.

    This is all the information you need to configure Eudora to send and receive email.

    Click the 'OK' button to close the Options and continue
