If you wish, you can say "Yes" when asked if Eudora should be the default mail application. This is optional.

Step 4: Checking Secure Email Configuration

Click on "Checking Mail" in the left-hand column. Verify that "mail.4securemail.com" (no quotes) is listed under "Mail Host." There are two choices for your Incoming server: POP and IMAP. If you are unsure as to which one you want to have, choose POP.

Click on "Sending Mail" in the left-hand column. Verify that "mail.4securemail.com" is listed under "SMTP Server," and "Allow authorization" is checked.

Enter your secure email password at the prompt and click "OK."

Step 9: Keychain Creation (Part 2)

Step 13: Keychain Creation (Part 6)

The certificate is created, and the Keychain certifies that it is OK. Click "Done."

Step 14: Keychain Creation (Part 7)

Your secure email Keychain opens with two items: the mail.4securemail.com certificate, and the mail.4securemail.com password. Other password and security items may be added to the Keychain manually, or via other applications you use (web browser, FTP client, etc).

Quit Keychain Access and return to Eudora to check and send email. You may need to quit Eudora and restart it again first.
