Setting up Download Preferences (Palm)

Document ID: 2198HQ

The accounts screen has four tabs for you to configure your account(s). The first tab is your basic mail settings, i.e. your mail settings such as your login name, mail servers and return address. This has all been explained in Getting Started and Multiple Accounts.

You can also tell Eudora how much of your mail to download. This option is great for both modem and HotSync users.

Eudora can be configured for sending mail and what signatures to use. You can also monitor security in Eudora.

Here is how to get to this window from the Eudora application.

  • Tap Menu.

  • Tap Options.

  • Tap Accounts.

  • Select the account you want to view - the Account: Name window will pop up.

The Receive Tab

The recieve tab in the Account: Name field allows you to determine how Eudora recieves mail.

Fetch first___ lines: Enter the maximum number of lines per message you want to recieve. By limiting the number of lines retrieved for each email message you save memory and increase speed. By default, this is set to 25. The larger the number you have here, the more space this will take on your Palm, this will also slow modem and HotSync downloads.

Fetch___ most recent messages: Enter the maximum number of messages to download each time your check mail or HotSync. By limiting the number of messages, you can save time with your downloads.

Overlap POP3 commands: This will help improve system speed when you download mail. If you get Protocol errors, try unchecking this option. Some servers cannot handle overlap commands.

Empty Trash before Check: If you trash your messages, use this to save space on your Palm when downloading messages. It will clear your trash for you.

Server Deleting Options button: If you tap this button, a window will pop up with a list of options for removing mail from the server.

To remove messages from the server, tap the check boxes that apply.

  • When fully retrieved: Tap this box to delete fully retrieved messages from the server. It will not delete if you have not downloaded the full message or if you have filters set up to do other wise.

  • When emptied from trash: Tap this box to delete messages from the server after you empty the trash. This options works with Empty Trash before Check.

  • After___ days: Tap this box and specify a number. If you check mail on a regular basis, Eudora will delete the messages that have already been downloaded after the number of days you specify. It's a good idea if you check mail from more than one location to have this number match, other wise mail can accumulate on the server.

  • Tap OK to exit the Server Deleting Options window.

You can access this tab from any account.
