It is possible handle multiple email accounts using Eudora 1.3, 1.5.5, Eudora Light etc and have them appear in a single inbox, just like Micro$oft Outlook. This is what you have to do... 1. Collate all the details of the accounts you want to be able to access. 2. Open up the System Folder, and open the Eudora Folder inside. 3. In here you will see a file called Eudora Settings. 4. Duplicate this file for each additional account you want to be able to access, renaming each as you go to something appropriate... eg. Freeserve email, Talk21 email, etc, etc 5. Make aliases of each of these new files, create a new folder called Email accounts (or whatever), drag all the aliases onto it. 6. Drag this new folder onto the Apple Menu Items folder. 7. Close up all the folders open on your desktop... 8. Drop down the Apple menu, and select your new Email accounts (or whatever you chose) entry from the list... 9. You will then be presented with your aliases... 10. Pick one, double click it and Eudora will start up... 11. In Eudora, go to Special, Settings and reconfigure this account with the details appropriate to the username you gave it. 12. Repeat the process from step 8 until you have reconfigured each account with the unique settings you want... 13. That's it! Next time you want to access a particular account, just go to the Apple Menu again, choose one of the aliases you made and Eudora reconfigures itself to use those settings so you can recieve or send mail using those particular details! You don't even have to quit Eudora before chosing another account! Hope this helps someone out there.
