All email sent to you initially arrives at the Nornet mail server. Here the email is sorted and stored in a mailbox (under your name) until you check your mail. The process can be likened to regular mail that is collected and stored in a Post Office mailbox. When you check your mail using an email program such as Eudora, the email is downloaded from the Nornet computer onto your computer.


1. From the Menu bar, select FILE and then CHECK MAIL.

You will now be asked for your password (see the image below). You will find this on your Nornet Registration letter. Be very careful when typing this password and make sure you type it in exactly as it appears on your registration letter.

Any messages that you have received will be downloaded from the Nornet server onto your computer. All new messages received are stored in your IN mail. By default, Eudora gives you three mailboxes:

 In:For receiving new mail
 Out:For mail you have sent out
 Trash:For mail messages that you have deleted

Additional mailboxes can created by clicking onto the MAILBOX menu, and then down to NEW

2. All exisiting mailboxes are displayed on the left-hand side of the Eudora window.

To view the contents of a mailbox, double-click on the mailbox name.
The following image shows how the messages are displayed on the right-hand side of the window.

Each message is listed as a single message summary line entry. The entry displays the sender's name, the date it was sent, and the subject of the email.

3. To read a message, double-click onto the message summary lie.

The right-hand window will change, and the message you have selected will be displayed.


1. To send an email you need to be in the 'New Message Window'.

Click onto the MESSAGE menu, and then down onto NEW MESSAGE. The 'message composition window' will appear, similar to the following image.

2. The Message Composition Windows contains the following:

The top-pane of the window conatins the Message Header Information, and the bottom-pane contains the Message Body.

This window can be likened to an office memo where you type brief details about the message, whom it's from and the subject at the top of the memo, and the memo contents in the bottom half of the page.

The various fields in the message composition window are explained below:

 To:  Type the email address of the person you are sending the email to
 From:  This field is automatically filled in with your personal details as set out in your Eudora configuration
 Subject:  Type a brief one-line description of the message you are sending
 CC:  Carbon Copy - Type the email address(s) of anyone else you wish to send a copy of the message to
 BCC:  Blind Carbon Copy - Similar to CC but the original recipient will not know that you sent a copy to anyone else
 Attachments:  Attach a file to the email message. For example an image, a word processing document, a sound file etc...

Once you have filled in the above details, type your message in the lower half of the screen

Click the SEND button on the top-right hand corner of the window to send your message.

Note: If you have a QUEUE button instead of a SEND button, click on the FILE menu, and then down onto

HOW TO QUEUE MESSAGES (write email offline)

1. From the TOOLS menu, select OPTIONS

2. Click onto the SENDING MAIL icon on the left hand side

3. Remove the TICK from IMMEDIATE SEND

Removing this tick will allow you to write messgae offline, store them in your OUTBOX and then send them later when you are online.
This way, all your outbound emails are stored in your OUTBOX until you click onto SEND QUEUED MESSAGES from the FILE menu
