Before using the Eudora application in HotSync mode, it is important that you select the HotSync action Do Nothing for other mail applications that run on the Palm device (for example, the standard Palm Mail application).

  5. In the Filter__ most recent messages, select the number of messages you want filtered during the synchronization. By limiting the number of messages filtered, you limit the number of messages copied to your Palm device.

  6. By selecting Deletion of mail on Palm Eudora causes deletion on desktop, you ensure that email messages deleted from your Palm device are also deleted from your desktop computer's email In mailbox during synchronization. This selection is turned off by default.

HotSync speed depends on several variables, including the number of messages in your desktop computer's inbox, your desktop computer's speed, and the number of messages in your Palm device.

HotSync speed slows if you have a lot of messages on either your desktop computer or Palm device or if your desktop computer's speed is slow. However, for a typical email user, sync completes in less than a minute, so HotSync should not be affected adversely.
