  2. Look in the Eudora directory for the directory "extrastuff".
  3. In this directory is a file named "esoteric.epi". Drag (copy or move) this file into the main Eudora directory. There will now be options extra listed, including a Ports page.
To change the outgoing (SMTP) mail port:
  1. Launch Eudora.
  2. Drop down the Tools menu, and choose Options.
  3. Click on Ports.
  4. Change the port from default 25 to 26
  5. Click OK
