Question: How do I set up Mac Eudora to access more than one mailbox?
Eudora makes it possible to access multiple mailbox accounts without having to launch a separate email application.
Here is a neat trick I've been using for a while to bounce between accounts without even quitting Eudora.. The trick involves
launching Eudora from a settings file rather than the application's icon.
If you have been using Eudora previously, then you already have a Eudora Folder that contains your settings in your System Folder. If not, then simply launch Eudora and it will be created. If you have just launched Eudora for the first time, then go ahead and enter the settings for the primary account. After entering the settings, quit Eudora.
After verifying that Eudora is not running, (1) open the Eudora Folder (in the System Folder) and find the file called Eudora Settings. (2) Rename this file to something that indicates whose settings it contains. (3) Create an alias to this renamed settings file and drag it to the desktop.
(4) Next, back up to the System Folder, and rename the Eudora Folder to indicate whose mail settings it contains.
You now have a single folder named for the user whose email settings it contains. (5) To add a second email account to Eudora, simply launch Eudora again by double clicking on the Eudora icon. This will create a brand new Eudora Folder in the System Folder. Enter the settings for another email account and follow the steps above to change the name of the settings file, make an alias, and rename the Eudora Folder. You may repeat this for as many accounts as you have.
You are now set up for multiple accounts using only one copy of Eudora. You may now launch Eudora and access the account you want by simply double clicking on the appropriate alias on your desktop. There is no need to quit Eudora to switch accounts. That's it!
