Many other email programs are available such as, Eudora, Netscape, and others. Use the Incoming and Outgoing mail server names from your New Account Quickstart for the setting in POP Server / Incoming Mail Server and in SMTP / Outgoing Mail server. Account and password for your email account(s) can also be found on your Quickstart. Troubleshooting: Your username and password must be entered exactly as shown in lower-case, with no spaces.
