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

 

Creating new e-mail accounts:

Warning:  if you delete an e-mail account, all the e-mails will be deleted along with it.

When you first open Netscape, the Browsing program opens first.  To open the Mail program, do the following:

On the Toolbar, click Window and select Mail & Newsgroups from the menu.

 

Netscape Mail opens.

On the Toolbar, click Edit and select Mail & Newsgroups Accounts Settings from the menu.

 

The Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings window opens.

Towards the bottom, left corner, click Add Account.

 

The Account Wizard launches.

Select Email account from the list.

Click Next to continue.

 

Your Name  =  Enter your name.
Email Address  =  Enter your e-mail address.

Click Next to continue.

 

Select POP.

Incoming server = 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.

If this is the first time you're setting up an account, Netscape will also ask for Outgoing Server info:

Outgoing 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.

Click Next to continue.

 

User Name  =  Enter your e-mail username (everything before the @).

Click Next to continue.

 

Account Name  =  Enter a name for the e-mail account.  It doesn't matter what you call it, but it should be distinctive.  This will help you distinguish it from any other e-mail accounts you create.

Click Next to continue.

 

Click the Finish button to complete the wizard.

Important:  You still need to enable SMTP authentication or you will not be able to send e-mail.  The next screenshot explains this.

 

Enabling SMTP Authentication:

We return to the screen below:

SMTP authentication helps deter people from spamming you.  It's as simple as entering a username and password.  Without SMTP authentication, you will not be able to send e-mail.

Highlight Outgoing Server (SMTP).

To the right, you'll see three fields:  Server Name, Port, and User Name.

Server Name = 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.

Port  =  the default port number is perfect:  25.

Check the box Use name and password.

User Name  =  Enter your e-mail username (everything before the @).

Click OK when finished.
