Setting up Eudora is easy if you have the right information. Everything you need is in the document we sent you, and some of it is included here on the website. Once you have it all, you are ready to set up Eudora.
How do I set up Eudora to check and send email?
I just changed Internet Service Providers and now need to change Eudora to check and send differently. How do I change my settings?
You can download the latest version of Eudora for free from: http://www.eudora.com/download/
Follow these simple steps, and use the details below fill in what you need within Eudora’s email setup, and save it for future reference.
- Your POP or mail server: pop.gn.apc.org
- Your SMTP or outgoing mail server: smtp.gn.apc.org
- Your email login name: loginname as supplied by us
- Your email address: firstname.lastname@example.org (if don’t have your own domain name then it is also @gn.apc.org)
Now you are ready to get started!
In Eudora, go to the Tools menu and select Options.
In the Options window, you will see several icons on the left. Select Getting Started at the top of the list.
In the Real name box, type your name the way you would like people to see it when they get email from you. For example, Bradley Close.
In the Email address field, enter your email address that you would like people to reply to. For example: email@example.com.
In the Mail Server (Incoming) field, enter the POP/IMAP mail server that was given to you by GreenNet (pop.gn.apc.org).
In the User Name field, enter your login name as it appears before the “@” sign in your GreenNet email address (@gn.apc.org – not your alias address) or as advised by GreenNet.
In the SMTP Server (Outgoing) field, enter the SMTP or Outgoing mail server that was given to you by GreenNet (smtp.gn.apc.org).
There should be a tick in the Allow authentication box. If you do not see a tick in the box, click on the box.
Click OK. This completes the basic setup – you should now be able to send and receive email in Eudora.
For extra security, you can ensure TLS encryption is on. Click on each of the Checking Mail and Sending Mail categories, and in the Secure Sockets drop-down box, use “Required StartTLS”. This may cause certificate warnings in Eudora 4-6. For more information on TLS encryption, see Sending email via SMTPS.
