Eudora setup

I've just had a heap of fun closing my ntl account in Scotland, moving to devon and setting up a new mail account. Of course I am now informed I can no longer access the account and cannot get tied back in to that address so I have to mail everyone I know showing thwem a change in mail adddress which is a real pain in the baws

 

Anyway the next problem was getting stuff setup on Eudora so that I could sent and receive

 

I am using Eudora 7.1.0.9

 

Using the Tools>Options way in the settings from the top are

Getting Started

Real Name - as per

Email address - kevin.tole@virginmedia.com

mail Server (Incoming) - pop3.virginmedia.com

user name - your full mail address here

SMTP Serrver (Outgoign) - smtp.virginmedia.com

Allow authentication - UNTICKED

 

Checking Mail

mail Server - pop3.virginmedia.com

user name : full mail address here

secure sockets when receiving: select REQUIRED, ALTERNATE PORT

 

Incoming Mail

Server Configuration: POP

Authentication Style: I chose PASSWORDS here but I've been told it shouldnae be - however mine works

 

Sending Mail

Email address : Full mail address here

SMTP Server : smtp.virginmedia.com

SMTP relay Personality : None

Allow Authentication : UNCHECKED

Use Submission Port (587) : UNCHECKED

Secure Sockets when Sending:  Select REQUIRED, ALTERNATE PORT

 

This got it working

 

Seems easy but took three hours, multiple phone calls, patience and trial and errror

but if yir like me and hate Outlook and MS products plus don't want web access from home machine it was worth the effort
