Q1: I'm using a dialup connection and I want to minimize the amount of time I spend online. How do I set Eudora so that it waits to send all my outgoing messages at once?

A1: If you follow the recommended dialup configuration (as per the Mac Eudora Pro 4 Configuration Instructions or the PC Eudora Pro 4 Configur ation Instructions) Eudora should already be set to queue messages. If it isn't, select "Options" from the "Tools" menu ("Settings" from the "Special" menu on a Mac), click on the "Sending Mail" icon, make sure the "Immediate Send" option is NOT chec ked, and click OK. Then you should be able to compose all your messages while you're not using the phone line, then connect with PPP/ARA and send them all at once by selecting "Send Queued Messages" from the "File" menu.


Q2: I'm using a dialup connection and I want to minimize the amount of time I spend online. How do I get Eudora to automatically dial and hang up a dialin connection?

A2: This is only possible on a PC with Windows 95/98/NT:

On other machines, you'll need to remember to disconnect manually.

Q3: I'm using a non-Yale Internet Service Provider and I want to continue using Eudora with my Yale email account. I understand that I need to change my SMTP server (outgoing mail) setting, and I've found out from my ISP what the setting should be. How do I change my SMTP server setting in Eudora?

A3: Select "Options" from the "Tools" menu (or "Settings" from the "Special" menu on a Mac), and click on the "Sending Mail" icon. In the box labelled "SMTP server", enter the address of your SMTP server. Click OK.
