SMTP Authentication (e-mail username) is required to send e-mail.

 

Creating new e-mail accounts:

Like most browsers, Netscape 4.X comes with its own e-mail client:  Netscape Messenger (Mail).

To create an e-mail account, do the following:

On the Toolbar, click Edit and select Preferences from the menu.

Note:  you can do this from the Netscape Navigator or Messenger.

 

The Preferences window opens.

Personal Info Settings:

Double click the Mail & Newsgroups category to expand it.

Highlight Identity.

To the right you'll see the following:

Your Name  =  Enter your name.
Email address  =  Enter the e-mail address of the account.

 

Server Settings:

Highlight Mail Servers.

Note the Incoming Mail Servers and Outgoing Mail Server sections.

To the right of the Incoming Mail Servers section, click Add.

    Note: You can only have one POP3 e-mail account in Netscape 4. 

 

Add an Incoming Mail Server:

After clicking Add, the Mail Server Properties window appears.

    Note:  You can only have one POP3 e-mail account in Netscape 4. 

Below the General tab are three fields:

Server Name = Incoming Server The Incoming (POP3) mail server usually follows this format:  mail.ispname.com (or .net).  Replace the "ispname.com (or .net)" with your ISP's name.

Server Type  =  Select POP3 Server from the drop-down menu.
User Name  =  Enter your e-mail username (everything before the @).

Check Remember password.

Click OK when finished.

 

Enabling SMTP Authentication:

We return to the following window:

SMTP authentication helps deter people from spamming, and it is as simple as entering a username and password.

Outgoing Mail Server:

Outgoing mail server  =  Outgoing Server The Outgoing (SMTP) mail server usually follows this format: mail.ispname.com (or .net).  Replace the "ispname.com (or .net)" with your ISP's name.

Outgoing Mail Server user name  =  Enter your e-mail username (everything before the @).

Note:  The next time you try to send e-mail, Netscape will ask you for your password.

Click OK  when finished.
