Accessing your Email and Email Management

Accessing Your Email

If you want to access your email directly from your domain rather than redirecting the mail to an existing email account, we recommend using Eudora as your email client. This is an email program that runs under Windows and Macintosh OS. There are many good reasons for using Eudora, one of which is that it allows multiple email accounts and personalities. See your program documentation for instructions on how to set those up.

Eudora connects to the mail server over the Winsock or Macintosh TCP/IP. Mail may be composed and read offline, but make sure that you are online before attempting to send or receive email.
