Our Customer Services - Email Setup - Netscape


Setting Up Mail Accounts on Netscape

  1. Before you set up a mail account, your ISP or email provider should give you the following information
    • your user name
    • your email address
    • he incoming and outgoing mail server names
    • the incoming server type (IMAP or POP)
  2. To set up a new mail or newsgroup account, begin from the Mail window
  3. Open the Edit menu and choose Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings. You see the Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings dialog box
  4. Click Add Account to start the Account Wizard. The information requested by the Account Wizard depends on the type of new account you specify in its first window. The boldface headings that follow correspond to the windows you'll see when you're setting up an ISP or email provider account
  5. New Account Setup: Choose the type of account you want to set up, then click Next.
  6. Identity: Enter the name and email address appropriate for this account, then click Next.
  7. Server Information: Indicate whether you want a POP account or an IMAP account. Not all service providers can support both options. You must also provide the name of your incoming mail server and your outgoing (SMTP) server here. This is the name of the mail server that sends your messages (also known as the SMTP host). Click Next to continue. Note: You need to specify only one outgoing mail server (SMTP), even if you have several mail accounts. The name of your SMTP host may not have been explicitly listed in the account setup information provided to you. For example, your SMTP host may be the same as your POP or IMAP host. If in doubt, contact your ISP or system administrator.
  8. User Name: Enter the user name provided by your ISP or email provider, then click Next.
  9. Account Name: Enter whatever name you want to use to refer to this account, then click Next.
  10. Congratulations! Verify that the information you entered is correct. If necessary, verify the information you entered with your ISP or system administrator. When you are sure that it's correct, click Finish to set up your account.
  11. You see your new account listed in the left side of the Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings dialog box. Click OK to start using your new account.
  12. You are now ready to retrieve messages from your account.
