Eudora Lite Setup

Eudora Lite is an simple program written specifically for internet mail, and it is very easy to install, configure and use.

One of the advantages to using Eudora Lite is that it allows you to install multiple copies of the program, with different settings, so you can take advantage of the additional email accounts that may come with your TConline service.

What follows are instructions to download, install, and configure Eudora Lite, as well as instructions to install and configure a second copy of the program to use with a different email address.

Install Eudora Lite

  1. Click to download Eudora Lite. When prompted for a location to save the file, select 'Desktop' and click on Save.
  2. Double-click the 'eul306' icon on your desktop.
  3. Click 'Next' on the 'Welcome' window to begin setup and Click 'Yes' on the 'License Agreement' window.
  4. Make sure that 'Eudora Light for Windows 95/NT (32-bit)' is selected, then click 'Next'.
  5. Click 'Next' on the 'Select Components' window that appears.
  6. Click 'Next' on the 'Chose Destination Location' window. This normally defaults to c:\program files\eudora - if you are installing a second copy of Eudora Lite, you will need to pick a different folder. To do so, click on 'Browse' and then change the path to something like c:\program files\eudora2 and click on 'OK'. Then click on 'Next'.
  7. Click 'Next' to 'Start Copying Files'.
  8. Click 'OK' on the 'Successful Installation' window that appears.
  9. Click 'Yes' if you wish to view the 'readme' file. Close the file when finished.

    1. Click your right mouse button, on an empty spot on your desktop.
    2. Select 'New | Shortcut' from the menu that appears.
    3. In the 'Create Shortcut' window, click on the 'Browse' button.

    6. Back at the 'Create Shortcut' window, click on 'Next'.
