    1. Click on the "Edit" pulldown menu
    2. Select "Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings"
    3. Click on "Add Account"

Step 3: New Secure Email Account Setup

  • The wizard window opens. Select "Email account" if not selected.

Step 9: Account Configuration

To configure your account to work with the Secure Email system, you need to go through the following steps.

  • In "Netscape Mail" choose the "Edit" pulldown menu.
  • Select "Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings."

Step 10: Secure Email Server Settings

  • Make sure the "Use secure connection (SSL)" is checked.
  • Although it is not required, we recommend the following for POP mail configuration:
    • Check the "Leave mail on server" checkbox (not checking this will tell Netscape to delete the Emails from the server and only allow you to check your Email from the computer that you are setting up Netscape).
    • Check the "Delete messages on server when they are deleted locally" checkbox (necessary if you choose to have the "Leave mail on server" checked, as your inbox will fill up on the server over time)

Step 11: Outgoing Server (SMTP) Settings

  • In the left band select "Outgoing Server (SMTP)."
  • Make certain that "Server name" is and "Port" is 25.
  • Click on the "Advanced" button.

Step 12: Advanced Outgoing Server (SMTP) Settings

  • Make sure "" is selected as Default.
  • Click "OK."
  • Exit Netscape and restart it for the changes to take effect. You should now be able to send/receive Email.
