How to configure an email account in Netscape

This tutorial assumes you've already created your new email account in your web hosting account..... typically through your hosting control panel

Now let's learn how to setup that new email account in Netscape, so you'll be able to send/receive emails to/from that new email account from here

1) Start by clicking Create a new account

The New Account Setup wizard opens

2) Ensure the Email account option is selected.....

3) Then click Next

4) Enter your name as you would like it to appear in the From field of emails you send

5) Then enter your new email address here

6) Click Next

Now you have to enter your Incoming (POP3) server name, which would have been provided to you in your welcome email

Typically, the Incoming POP3 server name is mail.yourdomain.com, where 'yourdomain.com' must be replaced with your own domain name

7) Enter your POP3 server setting now

8) Click Next

9) Now enter the email username as provided to you by your hosting provider..... this may be the entire email address (john@demo1234.com), or just the username prefix (john)..... check your welcome email to be sure

10) Then click Next

11) Enter an Account Name here.... this can be anything you want, as it will simply be the way you refer to this email account

12) Click Next

13) Click Finish to exit the wizard

We're almost finished! But first let's go finish configuring our email properties

14) Click John's Email, the address we just setup

15) Now click here to edit the account settings

16) Enter a Reply To address here

17) Then enter an Organization name here

18) Now click the Outgoing Server (SMTP) link here

19) Now enter your Outgoing (SMTP) server setting in this box

20) Then the username for the new email account

Depending on your ISP (Internet Service Provider), you may not be able to use the SMTP server setting provided by your hosting provider; you may have to use the SMTP server setting supplied by your ISP

If you are unable to send emails from your new account after it's setup, try changing this SMTP setting to that provided by your ISP, and try again

21) Click OK when finished

That's it! We've successfully setup an email account, and can now start sending and receiving emails to and from that account, from Netscape
