I was using Eudora for email on my Mac. I just activated the Apple Mail application and now I can no longer receive new messages in Eudora. I can send, but not receive. I get an error message alluding to password error. I can read the new messages in Apple Mail, but prefer Eudora. Can I uninstall Apple Mail?

Could you edit your question to specify Eudora and OS X versions and perhaps a screen shot of the eudora error (or at least a precise wording) of what it says is the problem. – bmike Nov 5 '12 at 2:18
In addition the title/goal (get rid of Apple Mail) doesn't directly match the problem (wrong password/connection problem) encountered. What exactly do you want to accomplish? – patrix Nov 5 '12 at 5:35


Open up, and visit the preferences (Menu Bar>Mail>Preferences).

Change the default mail client in the drop-down menu under "General" to Eudora.

If you really wanted, you could just drag from your Applications folder to the Trash at that point, but I would just leave it and ignore it.
