Chapter Six - Pop 3 Email Settings

Setting up your accounts to send and receive email is a relatively simple process. We've included instructions for the five most popular email clients below. If for some reason you feel you must have a SMTP (outgoing) server, we provide this feature to all our accounts.

Please note: Although your account exists on our server, you won't be able to receive email at until InterNIC has activated you in the domain name servers.

Eudora Pro 4.0
Eudora Lite
Microsoft Explorer
Microsoft Outlook


Email Address = (.net, .org)
Mail Server user name = username 
Outgoing SMTP Mail Server = The SMTP server of your Internet Service Provider
Incoming POP3 Mail Server = (.net, .org) 

Your default email address is, and that's where all your email will be sent to, unless other configurations take priority (such as autoresponders and redirects). 


Start Eudora and select "Settings" from the menu bar. Most of the options are self explanatory. Here are the steps you need to perform to set up Eudora: 

1) Select "Settings" from the "Special" menu
2) Select the "Getting Started" tab, then under Real Name, enter your Real Name
3) Under "POP Account" put
4) Leave Return Address blank unless you want people to send return email to you at a different email account
5) If you use the Macintosh version, the radio button for TCP/IP connection should be highlighted
6) Click the "Personal Information" tab (also only for the Macintosh version) 
7) Under POP account put again
8) Fill out the "Real Name" and "Return Address" as you did before
9) Under "Dial up User Name" enter your account username (do not enter .com or .net here) 
10) Click the "Hosts" tab then enter again under POP Account, and put the SMTP server of your local Internet Service Provider (ISP) under the outgoing SMTP Server. 
11) Go to the "Checking Mail" tab and make sure "Save Password" is checked. 

When you select "Check Mail" under the File menu, a window will pop up asking for your password. Enter in your password then click on the proceed button and Eudora will check to see if you have email. You can now send a test email message to yourself and then check to see if it gets returned to you. If you checked "Save Password" as in step 11, Eudora will not prompt you again for your password after the first time. If multiple users have access to your computer, and you don't want them to have access to your email account, make sure "Save Password" is unchecked.

To check numerous POP accounts, read the manual or help files that come with Eudora or your email client software for configuration. 

If you are familiar with the shell (Unix) programs, "pine" and "mail", you can use either of these to check and send email as well.
