Mac Eudora Pro 4 Configuration and Use Instructions

Step 0 -- Before you begin

You will need to know the following information when you configure Eudora:

NOTE: if you have a Biomed, Medical School, or other type of email account, enter your username on that system. NOTE: if you have a Biomed account, enter "biomed.med.yale.edu", if you have a Medical School email account, enter "email.med.yale.edu", and if you have some other email account get in touch with your System Administrator to find out the correct POP mail settings. NOTE 1: If you are using a non-Yale ISP (such as AOL, Compuserve, etc.) you will not be able to use "mail.yale.edu". Check with your ISP to find the address of an SMTP server you can use.

NOTE 2: If you have a Biomed or Medical School email account, enter "smtp.med.yale.edu".

Step 1 -- Start Eudora and begin configuring

To start Eudora, double-click on the "Eudora Pro" Icon. If you installed Eudora from the Dial-Up Networking CD, you can find this icon by double-clicking on the "Dialup Applications" folder on your desktop. Otherwise, find the "Email and Personal Accounts" folder on your hard drive, and double-click on "Eudora Pro".

The first time you run Eudora, you should automatically see the Settings window. If you don't see this window, or if you want to change pre-existing settings, select "Settings" from the "Special" menu, then click on "Getting Started".

Getting Started (click on the "Getting Started" icon)

Hosts (click on the "Hosts" icon) Step 2 -- Further Configurations

There are several more things you will need to configure before Eudora is ready to use. How you configure Eudora depends primarily on from where and from how many machines you check your mail. We have a set of standard configurations; if you don't fit any of the descriptions below, email us at iic@yale.edu and we'll help you figure out what your settings should be.

NOTE: to use the Kerberos authentication style, you must have a Pantheon account. Also, you must install the a version of Eudora that includes the necessary Keberos software. The most recent version of Eudora available at http://www.yale.edu/acs/software and the version that comes with 1998 of the Dial-Up Networking software both include the necessary software. If you do not have one of these versions, or if you have a non-Pantheon email account, you will have to use the Passwords authentication style. Checking Mail (click on the "Checking Mail" icon) You should pick one machine, the one you use most often, as your "Master" machine; all others should be "Slave" machines. The configurations below will ensure that the "Master" machine will always have a complete copy of all your mail. The "Slave" machine(s) should normally also have a complete copy unless you don't use it/them to check mail very often. Sending Mail (click on the "Sending Mail" icon) Miscellaneous (scroll down, then click on the "Miscellaneous" icon) Kerberos (scroll down, then click on the "Kerberos" icon)

Step 3 -- Using Eudora Pro

If you have questions about using Eudora Pro, try perusing the topics available under the Help menu. If you don't find what you're looking for there, feel free to contact the Internet Information Center.

Special note for "Slave" machines:

Normally Eudora keeps a copy of all outgoing mail. However, a message sent from the "Slave" machine will not automatically appear on the "Master" machine. If you want a copy of the outgoing mail to be automatically sent to you so you can save it on the "Master" machine, you will need to create Stationery that contains your email address on the "BCC:" line. For details on how to create Stationery, see Eudora's Help menu. [an error occurred while processing this directive]
