02-15-1999, 04:53 PM
I would like to set up my email address as I have my own domain name. I have read through the suggestions on the tutorials but I am not sure what to really do. Do i really need to purchase a program like Eudora Pro.
I presently using my aol email account.
I need somthing with my domain name eg firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for all your help
You do not have to use Eudora... there are any number of mail programs you can use.
I am not real familar with the AOL interface right now.. but what you are looking for is a mail program that will allow you to set-up POP accounts....
A free program that will do this is at http://pmail.usa.com/
Also Windows comes packaged with Outlook Express which will also do this for you.
I do know that some of our AOL clients use http://mail.yahoo.com to setup email accounts from their web based program, which is also free.
Look around in the Utilities/Programs forums and you will find quite a few comments/suggestions concerning various mail programs... there should be something that will suit your needs http://www.aota.net/ubb/smile.gif
Hope this helps

Hi again.. I went through the same thing as you when I switched here. I use Outlook Express now since it came with Windows 98. Takes a little getting used to working with non-AOL mail programs but you will get the hang of it. I actually had to sit and read my start up e-mail to figure it out...<a guy reading instructions is not a pretty sight http://www.aota.net/ubb/smile.gif >
Took me until last week to finally get all my files & folders transferred over to Outlook, but I have several hundred folders I deal with. <Jumping up and down that I'm not reliant on AOL as much>
