How do I set up Eudora to check and send email?

For example, John Doe.
In the RETURN ADDRESS field, enter your email address.
For example: [email protected].
In the MAIL SERVER (INCOMING) field, enter the POP or mail server that was given to you by your Internet Service Provider.
For example: pop-server.eudoramail.com.
In the LOGIN NAME field, enter the login name given to you by your Internet Service Provider.
For example: eudora-user.
In the SMTP SERVER (OUTGOING) field, enter the SMTP or Outgoing mail server that was given to you by your Internet Service Provider.

There should be a check in the ALLOW AUTHENTICATION field.
Leave the check there. If you do not see a check in the box, click on the box with your mouse until a check appears.
Click OK. This completes the basic setup - you should now be able to send and receive email in Eudora.
