Setup and Getting Started

Setup Instructions for using eNetBot Mail

eNetBot is easy to install, configure and use. The process just takes a few minutes and can be classified as shown below.


Download the software from our site and save the self extracting installation package on your PC. [Note: Internet Explorer v 4.0 or above is required to be installed on your PC for eNetBot to work. Click here to download the latest version if you do not already have v 4.0 or above]


Install the program by clicking on the enetbotmail.exe file. Follow the instructions on the screen. The program installs to C:Program FileseNetBoteNetBot Mail directory by default (Assuming C: is your root directory). You can change this if need be when prompted by the installation program.

Setup E-mail client

The next step is setting up an account with your email program. We have provided instructions for the procedure of creating a mail account for the following programs. The primary information required for setting up an account is given below:

Username        :   your AOL screen name

Password         :   your AOL password

POP3 Server    :

SMTP Server   :

The email clients that we have tested the current version of eNetBot are

Outlook Express 4.x, 5
Eudora Pro 4.2
Netscape mail
Outlook 98, 2000
Pegasus Mail
Talking Buddy

If your email program is not found in this list, please look in the documentation for the program as to the actual steps to be performed.

Add User Information to eNetBot

eNetBot Mail uses secure authentication for sending mail using AOL servers. The email clients do not provide this information while forwarding your email through eNetBot. Using secure authentication also serves to eliminate spammers from using eNetBot to post spam.

Add your AOL screen name(s) and passwords using the Account editor provided in the eNetBot mail control panel (double click on the eNetBot icon in the system tray or it can be accessed through the popup-menu by right clicking). This information collected by eNetBot is held securely (encrypted) on YOUR PC and is sent ONLY to AOL while authenticating your outgoing mail with the AOL server. [Note: Outgoing mail cannot be sent if the screen names you plan to use in the email client(s) are not entered here too]

This step is required for sending mail through the AOL server. Please add an entry for each AOL user account that you would like to access using eNetBot.

The AOL password provided by you will NOT be used by eNetBot for any other purpose than to authenticate your outgoing mail with AOL.

That is all you need to do with eNetBot to read and write your AOL mail. The eNetBot program is processing your mail in an unobtrusive manner by and needs to remain in your system tray at all times.
