Send and Receive Email in Netscape 7.x

Netscape Mail is a great way to set up your email retrieval. Unfortunately, on Netscape's newest browser 8.0, this option is no longer offered. You can go to http://sillydog.org/narchive/full67.php to get the 7.2 version of their browser if you like Netscape Mail.

  1. In Netscape, click on 'Windows' and choose 'Mail & Newsgroups'.
  2. Select 'Email account' and click on 'Next'. Or, if you already have an email set up on Netscape Mail, click on 'File' -> 'New' -> 'Account'.
  3. Identity: Enter the name and email address appropriate for this account, then click 'Next'
  4. Server Information: Insert the following information:

    Select the type of incoming server you are using: POP
    Incoming Server: mail.[host.name]
    Outgoing Serer: mail.[host.name]

  1. User Name: Enter your email address. Then, click 'Next'.
  2. Account Name: Enter whatever name you want to use to refer to this account. Click 'Next' when you're done.
  3. Verify that the information you entered is correct. You should have this information showing:

    Account Name: [your email address]
    Email Address: [your email address]
    Incoming User Name: [your email address]
    Incoming Server Name: mail.[host.name]
    Incoming Server Type: POP3
    Outgoing Server Name (SMTP): mail.[host.name]

  1. Click 'Finish' to set up your account.
  2. Go to 'Account Settings' and on 'Outgoing Server' it should have mail.[host.name] and the user should be your email account. Under 'Use Secure Connection' choose 'No'.
