    Change a password in Eudora

    I have been using Eudora forever, now V 7.1, all was well until I entered a wrong password for a new account and "Remember Password" was ticked. Now I cannot find any way to correct it. One other thing that some of you may know, how do I change the Dominant Personality?

    Thanks,

    David

    It's some time since I did this, and it was on version 6.2, so some details may not be correct.

    I think that changing some account properties will cause Eudora to ask for the password again. Then change the properties back so they are correct, and it should ask once again. Alternatively you can edit the eudora.ini file and remove the line SavePasswordText for the persona in question. It should then ask for a password next time you send or receive from that account.

    From memory I think I just changed all the properties for the dominant persona to change it to another account. It should also be possible by editing the eudora.ini file.

    I'm using Eudora 7.1. and recently changed the log in password to my isp so Eudora could not send or receive mail until I selected "special" from the top menu bar and then "forget password(s) from the drop down menu. Then, when I selected Check mail, I was prompted for the new password and was able to retrieve and send mail. Hope this helps.
