Activating your email account:
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 accounts.

After configuring and activating your email account, you may then proceed to configure your email client 

Configuring Netscape Messenger

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 : john@yourdomain.com).

Next, select MAIL SERVERS and fill in your server name, server type and user name.

Your SERVER NAMEwill 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 be "john%anything.com".

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.
