How To Setup Eudora To Check Your Email

Eudora is an email package that is free to download from here.

Eudora has three modes - Sponsored, Paid, and Light. Sponsored mode gives you the full-featured product, but displays ads on part of your screen. The ads are relatively unobtrusive. Paid mode gives you the same thing as Sponsored mode without the advertisements, but you need to pay and register for it. Light mode is Eudora without the bells and whistles, but also without advertisements.

When you install Eudora it will be in Sponsored mode by default. You can change the mode by choosing 'Payment & Registration' from the help menu.

These instructions assume that you are using Eudora 7 in Sponsored mode for Windows 98/Me/2000/XP. The configuration might be slightly different for other versions of Eudora.

Make sure you have created your email address in the Hosting Manager or Plesk for Windows Hosting, before setting it up in Eudora.

If you have, then continue below.
