Sorry if this post is long, but please bear with me, as doing this made it work for me, and it should work for you, too.
Unchecking "Use relay personality, if defined" is just one step towards fixing the problem. This will only enable you to get into the "Eudora SSL Connection Information Manager". Here's what you do: Go into Personalities, if you're not already there, and select Properties. Uncheck the box for "relay personality". Click OK.
Why was the relay personality box checked in the first place? This
doesn't really make sense to me.
First, the full name of the box is "Use relay personality, if
defined", so if, in Tools/Options/Sending Mail, no relay personality
has been chosen, checking the box doesn't do anything. Nor does
So if unchecking it did something, that means there was a relay
personality. Why? Either for a good reason or not a good reason.
Possibly not a good reason, because it's possible there was no good
reason but the user misunderstood the setting, or the reason ended and
the selection didn't get changed back to None.
But I think in most cases that someone designated one personality as
the relay personality (the one to be used for sending mail for one or
more *other* personalities) there was a good reason. In my case, one
of my mail servers cancelled my ability to send mail with it, and I
have to use the other one.
So if there is a functioning relay personality, that is the one whose
Last SSL Information should have been clicked on, in
Tools/Personalities/Propeties/Generic Properties. That would not
give the problem message "You have never sent email using an SSL
connection ---" because it's the personality used to send mail.***
But if you temporarily use another personality to send mail, and you
trust the certificates if needed for that personality, then when you
go back to using the Relay Personality, you'll still have to trust the
certificates for that one.
If you give up on using the relay personality entirely, ask yourself
why you were using it in the first place.
***BTW, if the OP got the message "You have never *checked* email
using an SSL connection ---", he's in the wrong Tab. Checking email
is about incoming mail, and it's managed by the Incoming Mail tab.
Sending email uses the Generic Properties tab. You'd be surprised how
many people look in the wrong tab.
And if all this is too much for you, even though it's simple once you
get used to it, you can use Stunnel, a free program, which is sort of
h ard to set up in the first place, but after that you're dne.

Try to send an email, and hit YES when you get the SSL error. Go back into the properties of your personality. THIS TIME, the "Last SSL info" button should get you into the Manager. Now, click on "Certificate Information Manager", and here's where the "fun" begins. At the top, you are presented with the certificates that didn't work, and all the ones that are "trusted". Your job is to add the "untrusted" ones to the "trusted" list. You will see a smiley-face and a + sign at the top of the list. Click on the + sign, and it will open another one like it. Keep clicking each + sign until you get to the last smiley-face with NO + sign. Click to select
the last one, then click on the "Add to trusted" button. Click the "Done", then the "OK", then the next "OK". Try to send an email. If this doesn't work, repeat the whole process, including the attempt to send an email. If this still doesn't work, then add each of the "smiley-face +" ones to the trusted list, too. Mine didn't work until I did that last step. I think this will work for everyone out there. I'm glad to see so many other Eudora fans out there!

Many of us are having the same problem. Click on "Last SSL Info" and get
"You have never checked (sent) email using an SSL connection ---"
I have tried both sending and checking but can not get to the next step. Suggestions please!
You may have a relay personality indicated in the Generic Properties.
In that case you have to do the procedure for that personality.
This has just cropped up with me. When I go to the
Personality/Properties/Generic I see the relay personality checked and
uncheck that, except that I don't have a relay personality. It
doesn't help I still get the "never sent mail using an SSL connection.
This advice helped me. Thank You! Kiitos!
