Other sources of Eudora help Tips on E-mail Netiquette
"Reading is like permitting a man to talk a long time, and refusing you the right to answer."
—Ed Howe

A few hints to get you started

  • Test your configuration by sending mail to yourself.
  • Remember to keep your replies in context. Have you ever gotten a phone message like "That's a great idea, Jim, let's work on it Monday." The only problem was that you didn't know which idea the person was talking about. E-mail can be like that.
  • Keep your replies to messages to the point. Only include the important comments and questions from the original message.
  • Just like in life, it never hurts and often helps to be polite and courteous when sending e-mail.
