1. Open Netscape Browser
2. Move to the
"Edit" drop down menu and select "Preferences."
3. From the
select "Mail and
click the +
symbol, which displays a list of options. Select "Identity."

address" of the
account you're setting up, and "your
name" as demonstrated
in the following example:
4. From the
"Left Menu", select the "Mail
Servers" tab and enter your appropriate information
as illustrated in the following example. Make sure to use
the "full Email Address"
of the account you're setting up as the "username."
When finished, click "ok."
5. Configure your "Outgoing

name, and as demonstrated in the following example. Click
"OK" when finished.
That's pretty well it! Close
your account settings and test out your new address by sending
a message to it. If you're able to send a message, and receive
that same message in your new account, then congratulations! -
you've successfully setup your first email account on our servers.
problems with sending mail:
Due the the mass amount of abuse from a few problem souls, an
increasing number of ISP's are disabling ability to "send
mail" through someone else's SMTP server. If you receive
an error message when attempting to use our "Outgoing
SMTP" server, it probably means your ISP has denied access
to (what is otherwise known) as 'third party relaying."
To solve this problem, simply go back to your account properties,
and select the "server settings" tab. Now,
there are two things you must do:
1. Change the "SMTP
Outgoing Mail Server" settings to the same ones as
you're using on your ISP's email account. This information
should be included with the setup instructions of your Internet
account. If not, contact your ISP for their "Outgoing
SMTP Mail Settings."
2. Once you've added
your ISP's SMTP settings, remove the information
in the "Outgoing Mail Server
User Name" and leave it blank.
DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING ELSE!
You can now receive mail from your domain account, while sending
mail will be accomplished through your ISP's SMTP servers.
This will in no way affect the performance or look of your email
messages coming from your domain.
DO NOT send large volumes of mailings through
our SMTP Relay server. It's really provided as a courtesy to our
users, and not something to be used for mass mailing list
purposes. If you're sending large emails, or are running
a mailing list, PLEASE use your ISP's mail server for this purpose.
They are better setup for this sort of heavy duty usage, and you
won't clog our SMTP server, which also needs to provide resources
to other users.
