To configure Eudora Mail to work with SecExMail, you will need the password given to you by your internet service provider (ISP) or your system administrator. SecExMail operates as a go-between or relay agent between Eudora Mail and your ISP's mail server. It encrypts and decrypts messages to and from people on your Friends list so Eudora Mail must be configured to send and receive mail via SecExMail. Follow the steps detailed below to configure a new email account in Eudora Mail for use with SecExMail. These instructions apply to Eudora 5.1
