If you would browse the list of topics in the forum, you'd see that there are a number of threads discussing this issue and most of the threads have the solution--it's just a matter of reading...'-}}

See TLB post on what to add. Note this is a bypass, in that it ignores CRAM-MD5 which verizon is mistakenly adveritsing (in the response to the EHLO at connection time) as a supported method. We are still pressing Verizon to find and fix the servers that respond this way. Its not all the servers.
Find the eudora.ini file (should be in the Eudora folder) using Notepad, edit the eudora.ini file by adding the following line in the [Settings] section: add SmtpAuthBanished=CRAM-MD5 after SmtpAuthAllowed=1. Save and restart Eudora.
I starting having the same sending problem using Eudora 188.8.131.52 and Windows 8.1 about a week ago. I am in SE VA.
I tried adding the line of code using Notebook, and every time I save, I get an access denied message. Is there a Eudora user out there than can help me with this?
I was able to get this done by editing the file, saving to the desktop and then dragging it to replace the existing file.

Looks like all is OK for now. Have no doubt that Verizon will cause a problem again in future. This forum is priceless!!
