Eudora

  • First, find out where your Eudora folder is stored. To do this:
    • Right-click the Eudora icon on your desktop. On the menu that appears, click [Properties].
    • A properties window will open. Look in the [Target:] field. It will show you the path to your Eudora folder - usually something like c:\Program Files\Qualcomm\Eudora\Eudora.exe. Note this path and click [Cancel].

  • Next, browse to this folder. To do this:
    • Double-click the [My Computer] icon on your desktop. For Windows XP, click [Start], [My Computer].
    • Double-click the drive indicated before the : in the path to your Eudora folder - usually this is C, or Local Disk (c:).
    • Double-click the first folder name in the path - the first name between \\'s. Ex. if the path was c:\Program Files\Qualcomm\Eudora... double-click "Program Files".
    • Double-click the next folder name in the path. Keep doing this until you're in the Eudora folder. Don't double-click Eudora.exe.

  • Click the [File] menu, click [New], [Folder]. A new folder will appear, probably named something like "New Folder". Right-click this folder name, click [Rename] to rename it, and type any name you want and hit <Enter>. The name should be one word, such as your login name. This will rename the folder. Close this window.
  • Right-click the Eudora icon on your desktop, and click [Copy] from the menu that appears. Then right-click an open area of your desktop and click [Paste] from the menu that appears. This will create a copy of your Eudora icon.
  • Right-click the new Eudora icon and click [Properties] on the menu that appears.
  • Add a "\" and the new folder name to the end of the information in [Start In]. For example, if you named your folder "test" and [Start In] reads "C:\Eudora", change it to "C:\Eudora\test".
  • Look in the [Target] field. If there are 2 paths in that field (ex. "C:\Program Files\Qualcomm\Eudora\Eudora.exe C:\Program Files\Qualcomm\Eudora", add the folder name to the end of the second path so it looks like the [Start In] field. If there's only one path in the [Target] field, type in a space after that path and then copy the whole path from the [Start In] field.
  • Click OK. Now double-click the second Eudora icon, and set up your new email address according to the instructions here.
