Header Area


Eudora automatically enters the real name and return address of the default account.

If you created multiple accounts and want to use another one, tap the From: field and select an account from the drop-down list.

To: Cc: & Bcc:

Use the To: field to enter an email address. To expand the To: or Cc: fields, tap To: or Cc:. The Message Addresses screen appears. To edit multiple fields from this window. Tap To: and a drop down menu will appear. Switch to either To: Cc: or Bcc.
