You can 'manage' many different emailaccounts with Eudora in seperate eudora-instances by adding a startup-folder in the shortcut.
Let's say you want to have 2 accounts, one for USER1 and one for USER2

Create two different folders, let's assume:
1) c:\euroda.users\USER1
2) c:\eudora.users\USER2

Then, edit the eudora shortcut by selecting it and pressing alt+enter (or rightclick and 'properties')

At 'target' add the fullpathname of the 1st user
(the target will then look such as:
'..\eudora.exe' "c:\eudora.users\user1")

At 'start in..': delete any value and replace with "c:\eudora.users\user1"

Close the propertieswindow.
Rename the shortcut-icon into something like "User1@yourprovider"

Copy this modified shortcut-icon and open the propertiespage of this copy. Modify all references to 'user1' into 'user2'.
Rename this second shortcut into something like ""

By using the correct shortcut, each user will be entering his/her own emailsettings.
Major advantage of starting eudora from another folder than the default programfolder is, that you can update eudora as pleased without having to safekeep your settings: all settings are being stored now on a user-base, so in folder ..\user1 and one in ..\user2 etc.
Each user has his/her own settings now.

Have Fun with still one of the best emailprograms!
