I was able to do just what you propose after installing Slackware
(1.2.13 kernel) without any tinkering.  Try setting up an account for
each user on the Linux server, then configuring each Eudora with the
username and password of the appropriate user.  I did this, and was
sending mail back and forth from Windows 3.11 w/ Pegasus Mail and DOS
6.22 w/ Popmail 3.2.  Now, someone else with more network smarts may
want to take  up the explanation on why this would work...
