Eudora on Windows Configuration - Manual Instructions

Note: CETS is phasing out its support of Eudora. If you are trying to decide which software to use, we recommend Thunderbird. If you are currently using Eudora, we recommend you move to Thunderbird; please contact CETS for help with the move.

1. Double-click the Eudora icon on your desktop. Do the following:

2. From the Tools dropdown menu, select "Options."

3. In the Eudora Options screen, click the "Getting Started" icon. Complete the the following fields for "Getting Started:"

4. Click the "Checking Mail" icon to display the settings for this option. Complete the following fields for "Checking Mail:"

5. Click the "Incoming Mail" icon to display the settings for this option. Complete the following fields for "Incoming Mail:"

6. Click the "Sending Mail" icon to display the settings for this option. Ensure the following three options are checked:

Ensure Secure Sockets when Sending is set to: "Required, Alternate Port".

 

7. Click on the "Display" icon to show settings for this option. Ensure that the box for "Automatically download HTML graphics" is unchecked. Disabling automatic downloading of HTML images helps protect your privacy. By automatically downloading images from an email you are communicating with an external server and this verifies that your email address is valid, possibly making you a target for more junk mail.

8. Click OK to save your changes.

 

* Try sending a test message to yourself.

* Check messages. Eudora will likely give an error regarding the SSL certificate. If this occurs, follow the instructions for updating Eudora SSL certificates.

* If you then do not receive the test message, use webmail to contact CETS.
