Configuring your Netscape Messenger
- Activating your email
Before you proceed in configuring your email
client, make sure you have created all your
email accounts through your web based control
panel under email
After configuring and activating your email
account, you may then proceed to configure your
email client (eg. Eudora, Netscape Messenger,
Outlook or Outlook Express).
- Configuring Netscape
In your Netscape browser, go to the Communicator
menu and select MESSENGER.
If this is the first time you are starting Messenger,
follow the instructions in the Mail and Newsgroups
Wizard to set up mail and newsgroup preferences.
If not, go to the Edit menu and select PREFERENCES.
In the preferences window, you will see a list
of menu on the left. Select IDENTITY.
Fill in your name, your email address
and the reply-to address text field.
The reply-to address text field is use if you
wish your mails to be replied to another email.
(Example of email : firstname.lastname@example.org).
Next, select MAIL SERVERS and fill in
your server name, server type and user name.
Your SERVER NAME will be the name of
the domain name you registered. For example:
If the domain you registered is "www.yourdomain.com"
then your incoming mail server would be "mail.yourdomain.com".
Your SERVER TYPE will be "POP3 Server".
In the USER NAME field, enter the user
name you created in the web based control
panel. For example: If the user name you
created is "John" and the domain you registered
for is "www.anything.com"; your login name will
After configuring your incoming mail servers,
its time to configure your outgoing mail server.
In the OUTGOING MAIL (SMTP) SERVER field,
we highly recommend using the outgoing or SMTP
server of your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
The reason is because you should experience
faster performance from your own ISP. In some
cases, you will not be able to use your ISPs
SMTP server for sending out emails.
If you are using our SMTP servers please be
sure to set your outgoing mail server to "mail.yourdomain.com"
from within your email program. Also, please
be aware that in order to send email though
our servers you must have successfully checked
your account within the past 60 minutes. Once
you have checked your mail, you will be able
to send mail for the next 60 minutes. We have
our server setup this way so that spammers cannot
access our smtp servers so easily. Otherwise
spammers could relay their bulk mail through
your account and send out millions of emails.
Not only is spamming illegal in some states,
but it also degrades the server performance.
Click OK. This completes the basic setup
- you should now be able to send and receive
email in Netscape Messenger.
