To configure your Eudora or any other e-mail client, you need to know
your POP3 and SMTP servers. To find them out:
- Log into H-Sphere control panel;
- Select Mail Info in the Mail Info menu.
Your provider's mail server may use different SMTP relays for sending
mail - POP before SMTP or SMTP AUTH. In POP before SMTP,
the relay system collects your IP address when you authenticate yourself
with the POP server, and then permits SMTP relaying from that IP address
for a short period of time. In other words, if your server uses POP before
SMTP, you need to check your mail first, only then you can send your messages.
If your mail servers uses SMTP AUTH, you must configure your Eudora
to send a login and password not only when you receive mail, but also
when you send it. Ask your provider which relay the server uses.
