    Eudora

    Eudora is the oldest client e-mail program on the Internet. The structure and operation of most other e-mail programs are fashioned after Eudora.

  1. Pull down the Mailbox menu and select New.
  2. In the dialog box that appears, type the name of your new mailbox. The name should be short (not more than 10 letters) but descriptive.
  3. Clicking OK will produce a mailbox in the right hand panel of the application. You can most easily store messages in this mailbox by dragging the message icon into the new mailbox.
  4. If you click the Make it a folder check box when naming your mailbox, it will produce a folder, within which you will be able to store other mailboxes.
  5. At this point, you can drag messages from your opened Inbox into appropriate other folders to organize them.
