Netscape Mail Setup

This document outlines setting up Netscape Messenger version 4.5, 4.6 and later to receive and send email. If you're using a version earlier than these, we recommend you download the latest version from Netscape, due to bug fixes and added features available in the newer versions. You can get the latest version for free from their website., www.netscape.com.
 
1.  You'll need to have Netscape open. Click on the "Edit" menu at the top of the window and select "Preferences". You should see a white column on the left hand side. Locate "Mail and Newsgroups" in that column. Click on it to select it. If there is a small plus sign (+) next to that item, click it to expand the list of items. Below it, you'll want to select the "Identity" item. 
 

2.  Enter your name in the "Your Name" field. Also, enter your email address, which is your username@pngusa.net, in the "Email Address" field. For example, if your username is johndoe, you'll enter johndoe@pngusa.net as your email address. After you've done that, click the "Mail Servers" item on the left.
3.  Enter your mail server settings by clicking the "Add" button. In the "Server Name" field enter mail.pngusa.net. Make sure the "Server Type" setting is set to "POP3 Server". Your username should be your Powernet Global username, without the @pngusa.net after it. After you've filled this information in, click OK. 

4.  Enter your outgoing mail server settings. In the "Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server" field enter in mail.pngusa.net. In the "Outgoing Mail Server user name' you should enter your username. Do not check "Use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or TLS for outgoing messages".  Make sure it is set to "Never". Click "OK" after this information is filled in. 

That's all! You can now click on the Communicator menu and select Messenger to bring up the Netscape mail client. Clicking the "Get Message" button on the toolbar will retrieve your new email. Clicking the New Message button will compose a new message. Enjoy!
