NOTE:

When you first check for email or send email for the first time on your new account, you'll be prompted for your password.

If you go to check your new email account for the first time, you will not need to enter your password to send mail after that.

Having Trouble Sending Email?

If you are having troubles sending Email, it may be due to your ISP locking the SMTP port to use only their server. You can try using Active Web Hosting's alternate SMTP port 587. If that doesn't work, you will have to use your ISP's SMTP server and log in with your ISP username and password for SMTP or sending mail only. You will need to contact your ISP for further instructions on setting up your email client to use their SMTP port.

To set up Eudora to use a different SMTP port for your Active Web Hosting account, you will need to edit the C:\Program Files\Qualcomm\Eudora\eudora.ini file in Windows Notepad or a plain text editor. Look for your account which would go under a header similar to [Persona - Your Name]. It will usually have POPAccount=username@yourdomain.com for example. Go to the bottom of the list in that category and add this line: SMTPPort=587 and press ENTER. Save this file. Note that there is no menu item or other way to change the port for any account in Eudora's menus. This is the only way to edit the port number with this version of Eudora.
