Configure Eudora Light
After you have downloaded and installed
Eudora Light, open the program. If you are installing Eudora for the
first time, the Getting Started Options are displayed. If they
do not appear, select Options... from the Tools
menu and click on the Getting Started category.
In the POP account field,
type in your full POP account name (for example, email@example.com).
In the Real name field, type
your real name. It is included in the From field of your
You can use the Return address
field to specify an email address which you want to appear in the From
field of your message. For example, your POP account may be called
firstname.lastname@example.org but you may want your messages to appear to come from
email@example.com. To achieve this, simply list firstname.lastname@example.org as
your POP account and email@example.com in the Return address field.
Specify a connection method. If you are
using Eudora via TCP/IP software (e.g. a direct network connection, SLIP or
PPP), select Winsock. If you are using Eudora via a Unix
shell account, select Dialup. Most users will select Winsock.
Click on Hosts in the
left-hand panel. In the
SMTP field type your domain name (e.g. mail.yourdomain.com).
Go to the Checking Mail tab
and make sure that the Save Password option is checked.
Click on OK and you are done.
To check your mail choose Check Mail
from the File
menu. If you have not entered your password before, Eudora will
prompt you to enter it now. Try sending a test message to yourself to
check that Eudora is configured correctly.

please consult the Eudora manual. The manual contains a tutorial which
should show you everything you need to know.
