To make Eudora handle two accounts you need to create a new personality in Eurdora:

1.From the Window menu, choose Personalities.
The Personalities window appears.

2.Click the New button.
An untitled personality item appears with the personality icon.

3.In the name box for the new item, type a name for the personality and press Return. (If the name box is not already highlighted for editing, click it once. After a short pause, the box is highlighted.)

4.With the personality item still highlighted (click once on the icon if it is not), click the Edit button.

The Personalities settings dialog appears which will allow you to put in all the information needed to receive and send mail for your second account.

When I go to Window and hit new for Personality, I get an icon which says "untitled 2." The first Personality is <<Dominant>>. So what do I call "Untitled 2?"
There may be other hangups that I'll discover when this is cleared up.

It doesn't matter what you call it. Just name it something that will make sense to you. For example Swarthmore if it's for that account or Verizon if you're entering the information for that account.

This is just a display name so it doesn't really matter what you call it. It's just for your reference.

OK. I tried to send mail from the verizon account to the swarthmore account. I got an Error Message--"Error while sending mail for Verizon: Error involving Domain Name System -3170; the Domain Name does not exist. {37-428}.
Was it because I was sending from one Eudora account to another?
Expert:  YMac replied 8 years ago.
No you should be able to send fine between accounts.

What settings did you put for SMTP Server?

I put "".
I don't understand IMAP and POP. the swarthmore account is IMAP. Is VErizon the same? How do I find out?

Make sure you put in all your account information correctly for both accounts. If you are not sure you might have to contact the respective providers.
