NOTE: When setting up your Bowdoin email using Eudora, we recommend using IMAP and not POP. Using IMAP guarantees your email will stay on the email server. This ensures that you can use Webmail to view your email from anywhere you have an Internet connection! (Setting up your email using POP can result in all of your email getting taken off the email server and moved onto your computer.)
The settings for Eudora work the same for computers on and off campus.
Click on the Eudora menu and choose Settings...
In the Settings window click on the Getting Started icon in the left frame of the window.
Next to User Name:, type in your Bowdoin username.
Next to Mail Server:, type: imap.bowdoin.edu
Next to Real Name:, type in your name.
Next to SMTP Server:, type: smtp.bowdoin.edu
In the next field, type in your Bowdoin email address.
In the Settings window click on the Checking Mail icon on the left frame of the window.
