Eudora: How to Save Emails to Your Mail Server

Saving emails on email server with Eudora.

From the experts at Wilson Computer Support.

This guide will walk you through the process of setting up your Eudora account to save emails to the server. The reason most people do this is because it allows your emails to be stored in a location other than your computer, so if an email gets accidentally deleted or lost, you can recover it by accessing your server. If you have any questions or issues, you can call our office at 205-985-9942, or email us at

Step Five:

Review all the information and make sure you are saving your emails for the time period you would like for them to be saved. Leave the server configuration and authentication style unchanged in order to ensure you can still access your email how you were accessing it prior to saving emails to server. At this point click “OK”.
