Start by clicking the CREATE NEW ACCOUNTS LINK.

The NEW ACCOUNT SETUP WINDOW will open. Scroll down and make sure the EMAIL ACCOUNT option is selected.

Click NEXT.

Enter the NAME you would like to appear in the FROM FIELD of outgoing messages.

Next enter your NEW EMAIL ADDRESS in the box provided. Click NEXT.

Now you have to enter your INCOMING POP3 AND OUTGOING SMTP MAIL SERVER NAMES.

These server names will have been provided to you in your welcome email and oftentimes are simply mail.yourdomain.com.

Now enter our INCOMING (POP3) SERVER SETTINGS in the provided box.

Click NEXT.

Now enter the EMAIL USER NAME as provided to you by your hosting provider. This may be the entire email address or just the user name prefix.

Click NEXT.

Enter an ACCOUNT NAME in the box provided. This can be anything you want it to be, as it will simply be the way you refer to this email account. Click NEXT.

Click FINISH to exit the Wizard.

Click the link at the top left for the email account you just set up.

Click VIEW SETTINGS FOR THIS ACCOUNT.

Enter a REPLY TO address in the box provided.

Then, enter an ORGANIZATION NAME in the box provided.

Now click the OUTGOING SERVER (SMTP) link on the left column.

Now enter your OUTGOING SMTP SERVER SETTING in the box provided.  Make sure the outgoing mail server (SMTP) AUTHENTICATION box is checked.

SMTP AUTHENTICATION means that Netscape will login to your mail server even when sending emails (not just receiving) ensuring that you are the ONLY one that can send emails from your account.

Most SMTP servers use the SAME USERNAME AND PASSWORD as the POP3 servers.  So ENTER your username in the box provided. Scroll down.

Click OK.

That’s it! You’ve successfully setup an email account and can now start sending and receiving emails from that account from Netscape.
