EUDC lets you maintain a list of frequently used servers so that you
can easily switch from one to another. Most users should configure
the hotlist via Customize, and store the configuration in the main
Emacs initialization file. Configuring it dynamically can be
confusing, particularly if the hotlist settings are saved to
historical and support for it is still maintained, but new EUDC users
However, this hotlist also appears in the ‘Server’ submenu. You
select a server in this list by clicking on its name. You can add the
current server to the list with the command M-x
eudc-bookmark-current-server. The list is contained in the variable
eudc-server-hotlist which is stored in and retrieved from the
file designated by
eudc-options-file, or normal Emacs
eudc-ignore-options-file is non-
EUDC also provides a facility to edit the hotlist interactively
(see The Hotlist Edit Buffer).
The hotlist is also used to make queries on multiple servers successively (see Multi-server Queries). The order in which the servers are tried is the order they appear in the hotlist, therefore it is important to sort the hotlist appropriately.

nil, EUDC ignores
eudc-options-file and warns or
issues an error when an attempt is made to use it. Most users should
set this, and keep their EUDC configuration in the main Emacs
initialization file instead. The separate eudc-options file
has created confusion for users in the past.
The name of a file where EUDC stores its internal variables (the hotlist and the current server). EUDC will try to load that file upon initialization so, if you choose a file name different from the default ~/.emacs.d/eudc-options, be sure to set this variable to the appropriate value before EUDC is itself loaded.
