Configuring Mac Eudora for SSL IMAP and SMTP

To set up Eudora on Mac OS X to access and send mail securely using SSL IMAP and SMTP via Neomailbox, follow these steps:

First, select "Preferences" from the Eudora menu:

In the window that pops up, fill in your Neomailbox username in the User Name field, your full name in the Real Name field, and "neomailbox.com" in the Mail Server field. (If your account is hosted in Switzerland, then fill in "neomailbox.net" in the Mail Server field instead).

Click on the "Checking Mail" icon on the left sidebar, and select IMAP for the "Mail Protocol" field. Enable the checkbox for "Check mail every _ minutes" and set the mail check interval to 10 minutes. You can leave the other fields at the default settings (unless you want to change any of them).

A password prompt will pop up. Type in your Neomailbox account password, and click "OK". It's a good idea to leave the "Save password for this personality" option enabled, as this will save you the trouble of having to type in your password every time Eudora checks for new mail.
