Unfortunately Eudora doesn't provide an easy way to change the SMTP port number which is required if you decide to use indoglobal.com's SMTP server. Please do the additional steps below if you wish to use our server's SMTP server for sending emails.

  1. Close Eudora if it is running.

  2. Look for a file inside your C:\WINDOWS directory (or where you installed Windows) named 'services' and open it with a text editor such as notepad. The exact location of this file could be different with different version of Microsoft ® Windows ®, use the search/find function of the operating system to locate the file.

  3. Change the line that says 'smtp 25/tcp' to 'smtp 8025/tcp' or 'smtp 587/tcp'. Save the file.

  4. Open the directory where you installed Eudora (i.e. C:\Program Files\Qualcomm\Eudora). Enter the directory extrastuff. Inside this directory is a file esoteric.epi. Move this file to the main Eudora directory.

  5. Start Eudora. Go to Tools and then Options. Locate the Ports menu on the left pane and click it. Specify '8025' or '587' in the SMTP Port field. Click OK to continue.


Please note that changing the SMTP port number will affect ALL your personalities including those not hosted on our server.
