Eudora Light Configuration


NOTE: CNM Network is not associated with Eudora or Qualcomm in any way. This guide is provided as a convenience to CNM Customers. This guide was created using the 32 bit Eudora Light client, version 3.0.6.

SECURITY NOTE: Users who have Eudora Pro Email 4.0 for Windows and Eudora Pro Email 4.0.1 for Windows should be aware that having certain features enabled can be a security risk. Users who have an affected version of Eudora are recommended to visit Eudora's site to download a patch. This issue can be temporarily dealt with by disabling the Microsoft Viewer in Eudora.

The following steps are from a security alert from Qualcomm to registered users of the affected versions:

1. In Eudora, go to the Tools menu and choose "Options".
2. On the left hand side of the options window, select "Viewing Mail".
3. On the right hand side of the options windows, make sure the box next to "Use Microsoft's Viewer" is UNCHECKED.
4. Click on "OK" on the bottom of the window.
