Default Eudora problem

Can't get Eudora to send and recieve email. Sitestar repeatedly says both
servers are

mail.sitestar.net

Eudora says can't connect. Connection timed out. Tried Eudora tech
support. No response. Tried several outgoing port numbers with no success -
25 default & 587.

Any guesses? I'm stumpted. Probably Thunderbird or other app will have the
same problem.

Questions?

TIA.

Eudora was discontinued a long time ago. They moved to a fork of
Mozilla's Thunderbird, called Eudora OSE, but that got dropped a long
time ago, too.

In a command shell, "telnet mail.sitestar.net 587" works: I get
connected to the server, so the server is there and responsive. Can you
get to their mail server if you telnet to it?

Any guesses? I'm stumpted. Probably Thunderbird or other app will have the
same problem.


Have you tried booting into Windows' safe mode with networking and then
testing if Eudora works? Safe mode will likely get rid of any security
software (e.g., anti-virus, firewall) that you installed or any of the
startup programs that might interfere with the connection.

Doesn't mean it stops working though.

I don't know if that move was by the Eudora folk, or some third party
just trying to make a version of TB that _looked_ (to sighted people)
like Eudora. Certainly, it was based on a very early version of TB, and
I don't think was ever updated. I'm not sure it was different enough (at
the time it was made) from TB to be called a fork - I think a clever
skin might be a better description; however, I didn't play with it for
long, just long enough to establish that it wasn't usable for my blind
friend. (I'd been hoping to move him to TB and saw it as a possible way:
not that I thought TB better than Eudora, but thought TB was - then -
slightly more being developed than Eudora, which had definitely come to
a stop, and also had somewhat wider support, of the
find-someone-who-can-help-with problems variety. It's become academic as
[a] TB development has also almost stopped, like most email clients, and
[b] genuine Eudora works well enough on Windows 7 [and 10 I think].)
[]
Hope you got sorted. I was going to say does the sitestar server respond
to pings, but since another has actually got telnet responses out of it,
that's probably moot.

No problem here connecting to server mail.sitestar.net port 587 with no SSL
(tested using Agent, not Eudora).

You do have SSL _off_ when using port 587, I trust.

Check your firewall/AV's settings to see whether it is allowing Eudora to
connect.

FOOTNOTE:

I would be a little surprised if Qualcomm were providing Eudora tech
support 12 years after discontinuing Eudora. I imagine you rang one
of the many 3rd-party numbers who advertise support for Eudora and
who also advertise support for other computer questions. Google
search turns up quite a number of them.
