How To Check and Send Mail (MAC)

Document ID: 2435HQ

Issue:

How do I check my email in Eudora? How do I send email in Eudora?

Solution:

Before you can send or receive email, you must enter your internet provider and email information into Eudora. Go to SPECIAL / SETTINGS... and fill out the "Getting Started" tab with the information given to you by your service provider. For detailed instructions on setting up Eudora, click here

If you are running a Windows machine, click here

Once your set up is complete, you can send and receive email.

Receiving email:

1. Make sure your computer is connected to the internet via your service provider

2. Open Eudora

3. a)If you have Eudora set up to check mail automatically, Eudora may ask you for a password. If so, enter the password and click on "OK". Once the password is accepted, Eudora will connect to the mail server and retrieve whatever mail is waiting for you.

b) If Eudora is not set up to check mail automatically, select FILE / CHECK MAIL from the menu. You may be asked for a password. If so, enter the password and click on "OK". Once the password is accepted, Eudora will connect to the mail server and retrieve whatever mail is waiting for you.

When Eudora is open, select FILE / CHECK MAIL whenever you want to poll the mail server for new messages. You can set up Eudora to check mail automatically by selecting SPECIAL / SETTINGS... / CHECKING MAIL and put a check in the box next to "check mail every ___ minutes". Then, enter a number in the blank box. If you enter "5", Eudora will automatically check for mail every 5 minutes while Eudora is open and connected to the internet.

Sending Mail:

1. Make sure your computer is connected to the internet via your service provider

2. Open Eudora - if you have Eudora set up to check mail automatically, Eudora may ask you for a password. If so, enter the password and click on "OK".

3. Select MESSAGE / NEW MESSAGE from the menu. This will bring up a blank email message.

4. In the "To:" field, enter the email address you will be sending this message to. You can enter your own email address if you would like to send the message to yourself as a test.

5. The "From:" field should already be filled out with your own information. If not, go to SPECIAL / SETTINGS... / GETTING STARTED and check the "Real Name" and "Return Address" fields.

6: You can leave the rest of the fields in the header blank - refer to the Eudora manual for a detailed explanation of each field.

7: Use your mouse to click into the body of the message. In the body of the message, type your message.

8: When you are finished composing your new message, use your mouse to select the "Send" button at the top right hand side of the message window. If Eudora is NOT set up to check mail automatically, Eudora may ask you for your password at this point. If so, enter the password and click on "OK". Eudora will connect to the mail server and send the message.

** Note, once you send a message, you cannot retract it. Make sure to check for spelling errors and be sure that the addressees are correct.
