Configuring Eudora to use Zaep - KB Article #1311Related Articles --
After installing and configuring Zaep, your email client must also be configured to use Zaep. To learn more about account configuration in Zaep, please click here (article 1307).
NOTE: Before setting up Eudora, you must first perform the following steps to make sure all configuration options are available in Eudora:
- Close Eudora.
- Open Windows Explorer to your Eudora installation directory.
- Copy the file esoteric.epi from the extrastuff directory to the installation directory where Eudora.exe resides.
This file is required in order to configure port settings for your POP3 and SMTP servers since, by default, this is not configurable in Eudora.
To configure Eudora to use Zaep, follow these steps:
- Start Eudora.
- Select "Tools | Options".
- Select the "Checking Mail" category.
- In the "Mail Server" field, enter the IP address or domain name of the computer running Zaep. If Zaep is installed on the same machine as Eudora, you can use 127.0.0.1 (or localhost).
- Change your "Login Name" to your actual email address (for example firstname.lastname@example.org). NOTE: This MUST be the same as the Zaep account name you intend to use.
- Select the "Incoming Mail" category.
- Select "POP" for "Server configuration".
- Select the "Sending Mail" category.
- In the "SMTP server" field, enter the IP address or domain name of the computer running Zaep. If Zaep is installed on the same machine as Eudora, you can use 127.0.0.1 (or localhost).
- Scroll down to the last category, and select the "Ports" category. If this category doesn't appear, follow the first set of steps above to add the esoteric.epi file to the correct directory.
- Enter the Zaep SMTP Server port number into the "SMTP Port" field. The default port number used by Zaep is 2500. Use the value you entered during setup, or whatever value you entered for the SMTP Proxy Port.
- Enter the POP3 port number into the "POP Port" field. The default port number used by Zaep is 1100. Use the value you entered during setup, or whatever value you entered for the POP3 Proxy Port.
NOTE: Zaep must be configured with a matching account (matching email address). Click here for article 1307 to learn more about configuring a Zaep account.
