Eudora Pro 4.3 Setup

Eudora Pro has released version 4.3 of this powerful email program. This software is being offered to the public, free of charge as 'bannerware'. 'Bannerware' displays advertising banners until the software is registered and the software distributor is paid for the program.

Eudora Pro allows you to set up multiple email accounts and has features to filter unwanted email messages.

What follows are instructions to download, install, and configure Eudora Pro 4.3, as well as instructions to install and configure multiple email accounts to use with different email addresses.
