Eudora comes in two versions, Eudora Light and Pro. Eudora Light is available as a free download. Eudora Pro, however, must be purchased. The following screen shots of the setup screens may vary a little, but these should help you set up the program to work properly.
New Account Setup
Step 1) Open the program and select the Options command from the Tools menu (in later versions you need to select the Settings command under the Special menu).
Step 2) The POP Account is the important part here. If you have your own domain, you will use firstname.lastname@example.org
If you subscribe to michusa.com, use email@example.com as your POP account: name. Type your name in the Real name: field. Your connection method should be set to Winsock (Network, PPP, SLIP. Next click on the Personal Info tab:
