your email account:
Before you proceed in configuring your email client,
make sure you have created all your email accounts through
your web based control panel under
configuring and activating your email account, you may
then proceed to configure your email client (eg. Eudora,
Netscape Messenger, Outlook
or Outlook Express).
In Eudora, go to
the Tools menu and select OPTIONS.
In the Options
window, you will see several icons on the left. Select
In the REAL
NAME field, type your name the way you would like
people to see it when they get email from you. For example,
In the RETURN
ADDRESS field, enter your email address. For example:
In the MAIL
SERVER (INCOMING) field, enter the POP or mail server
that was given to you. For example: If the domain you
registered is "www.yourdomain.com" then your
incoming mail server would be "mail.yourdomain.com".
In the LOGIN
NAME field, enter the login name you created in
the web based control panel. For
example: If the user name you created is "John"
and the domain you registered for is "www.anything.com";
your login name will be "john%anything.com"
In the SMTP
SERVER (OUTGOING) field, we
highly recommend using the outgoing or SMTP server of
your Internet Service Provider (ISP). The reason is
because you should experience faster performance from
your own ISP. In some cases, you will not be able to
use your ISPs SMTP server for sending out emails.
If you are using
our SMTP servers please be sure to set your outgoing
mail server to "mail.yourdomain.com" from
within your email program. Also, please be aware
that in order to send email though our servers you must
have successfully checked your account within the past
60 minutes. Once you have checked your mail, you will
be able to send mail for the next 60 minutes. We have
our server setup this way so that spammers cannot access
our smtp servers so easily. Otherwise spammers could
relay their bulk mail through your account and send
out millions of emails. Not only is spamming illegal
in some states, but it also degrades the server performance.
OK. This completes the basic setup - you should
now be able to send and receive email in Eudora.
