Configuring Eudora E-mail Client

To configure your Eudora or any other e-mail client, you need to know your POP3 and SMTP servers. To find them out:

Your provider's mail server may use different SMTP relays for sending mail - POP before SMTP or SMTP AUTH. In POP before SMTP, the relay system collects your IP address when you authenticate yourself with the POP server, and then permits SMTP relaying from that IP address for a short period of time. In other words, if your server uses POP before SMTP, you need to check your mail first, only then you can send your messages. If your mail servers uses SMTP AUTH, you must configure your Eudora to send a login and password not only when you receive mail, but also when you send it. Ask your provider which relay the server uses.
