This script relies on Eudora not displaying a dialog box indicating that you
have new mail. Switch this setting of in Eudora using
Tools/Options/Getting Attention and then uncheck 'Use an alert dialog
box'. Remember to replace your-connection-name with the name of your
DUN connection, making sure it is the correct case. Depending on how
you have Dial Up Networking set up, you may need to send some
additional key strokes to enter your username and password, if your
system displays a Dial Up Networking connection dialog.
