Netscape Email Setup
Netscape email is set up from the Edit-Preferences menu. This will launch a new window. The left side of this window contains a list labelled Categories. Email is set up in the Mail and Newsgroups category. Under Mail and Newsgroups there are sub-categories. If the sub-categories are not shown, click on the triangle to the left of Mail and Newsgroups to expand the sub-categories.

First click on the Identity sub-category. The right hand side of the window will then show the Identity screen. Here you should fill in at least the Email address field. If your NetPERLs user name is foo, fill in here. Be sure to use all lower case letters, because the NetPERLs server cares about upper and lower case.

If your real name is Calvin Klein but your user name is foo, it is usually nice to fill that out in the Your name field. This way people who get mail from you will know it is from Calvin Klein, rather than just whom they have never hear of.

Next Click on the Mail Servers sub-category. Click on the Add button on the right of the Incoming Mail Servers box. This launches another screen. Enter in the Server Name field. Click on the button next to Server Type and select POP. Finally, enter your user name in the User Name field. If your user name is foo, enter just foo. Do NOT enter We recommend that you also check the Remember password and Automatically download any new messages buttons. The Check for mail every 10 minutes is also a good setting. When done, click the OK button.

Next set up your outgoing mail server. Since NetPERLs does not provide dialup service, this setting will be strange. In the Outgoing mail (SMTP) server field, put the mail server of your dialup service provider. If you dial in to and they tell you that their mail server is, enter here. Enter your user name for your dailup serves in the Outgoing mail server user name field. Do NOT enter in the Outgoing mail (SMTP) server field. If you do this, you will get an error message when trying to send mail.

Through the wonders of internet mail, mail that you send out will be relayed by to wherever you want it to go. The Identity screen you filled in above will cause your NetPERLs address to be filled in the From: and Reply-To: fields, so returning mail will come to your NetPERLs email.

When done, click the OK button. You are now ready to send and receive mail.
