  1. Firstly, note that DataNet is NOT compliant with older versions of Eudora.  Anything below version 5.2.1 may or may not work (Versions 2, 3.1, 4.0, 4.3 have been tested and do NOT work). DataNet recommends that you download and install the latest version of Eudora before continuing.  Eudora is available at http://www.eudora.com/products/eudora/download/windows.html  Follow the instructions on that page to download and install Eudora.
  2. Once you have finished installation start Eudora.  If you are prompted with a message Eudora is not currently the default mail program click Yes. 
  3. A New Account Wizzard will begin automatically.  Click Cancel to exit this wizard.
  4. Click Tools, and then click Options.
  5. Fill your real name in the Real name field.
  6. Fill out the your Return address as your DataNet email address - what-you-filled-out-on-the-sign-up-sheet@datanet.ab.ca
  7. Fill out your Mail Server (Incoming) as mail.datanet.ab.ca
  8. Fill out the Login Name as your email address example user
  9. Fill out the SMTP Server (Outgoing) as mail.datanet.ab.ca
  10. Click on the Incoming Mail category on the left hand side.

If you have more then one email account you will need to install multiple copies of Eudora to different directories.  To set up these other email accounts follow the same steps above using the different accounts and passwords, each with it's own installation separate installation of Eudora.
