Incoming Mail Server = Follows this format: mail.ispname.com (or .net) with your ISP's name substituted for "ispname.com (or .net)".

Outgoing Mail Server = Follows this format: mail.ispname.com (or .net) with your ISP's name substituted for "ispname.com (or .net)".

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

 

  Creating a New E-mail Account:

To create a new e-mail account in Netscape 7.X, follow these steps:

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

 

The Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings window appears.

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.

Click Next to continue.

 

Incoming 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 Finish 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 Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings window.

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 the Advanced button.

 

The Advanced Outgoing Server (SMTP) Settings window appears.

Ensure that only one outgoing mail server is entered.  Netscape, as well as most e-mail clients, has difficulty with more than one outgoing mail server.  Delete any obsolete mail servers.

Important:  Verify that there are no blank servers entered.  I there are any, you would be able to highlight the server even though the address is not present.

Click OK when finished and close all other windows.
