In the RETURN ADDRESS field, enter your email address. For example: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.

Click OK. This completes the basic setup - you should now be able to send and receive email in Eudora.Â
