I am wondering how to configure Eudora for my hotmail account. I have always used Outlook Express, and this is the first time I'm trying Eudora.
I have confusion at what to enter in the Incomming Mail Server field.
When I go to Options under Tools menu, I am asked to fill following fields;

1. Real Name
2. Return Address
3. Mail Server (Incoming)
4. SMTP Server (outgoing)

What is right Mail Server (incoming) and SMTP Server (outgoing) for hotmail account? Also is there anything else to be configured except the above fields?

Thank for your time!

i dont think microsoft owned hotmail is real accomdating to any software that isnt its microsoft...but you can download a freeware app called hotmail popper: <A HREF="http://www.boolean.ca/hotpop/" target="_new">link</A>. a friend was using it for his yahoo mail, and said i could use it for my hotmail account, but i never tried it so i dont know how well it works, if it isnt spyware, etc. so you may want to check it out some more if you used it.

Oh, yeah ... Eudora is still around, dude. And IMHO, it kicks MS Outlook's sorry tail around the block. Precise manual filtering for SPAM, easy backups, and far less security risks. It also comes in at around 6.25MB for the entire program, and can be set up for individual users without conflicts, just by changing the default installation locations.

I've been a big fan of the product for years.

It really works. That's great.
Now the question is,"Is Eudora spyware?"
Ad-aware 6.0 detects it as spyware, though I'm using it in Pay Mode.

This is a "false positive" detection by Adaware.
