Troubleshooting Section

1.The POP account in Eudora is defined as your POP Instead of having two separate fields, Eudora combines the two settings into one. Verify this setting is correct.

2.The Eudora dialer is a Unix Shell dialer and can not be used on our service as a dialer.

3.If you get the error "503 Need RCPT (recipient)" when sending mail it usually due to an incorrectly defined address book entry. Type the complete e-mail address within a new message and re-send the email.

4.It is best not to use the Change Password under Special. Click on Forget Password and then try and retrieve your mail and Eudora will prompt you for the password again.

5.If unable to send e-mail verify you have typed the full complete and correct e-mail address of the receipient and retry. Also verify you are dialed into our service as use of the SMTP server is limited to our service.

6.If unable to receive e-mail try having the helpdesk telnet into your mailbox to look for server errors.
