YOU SHOULD UPGRADE TO A NEWER VERSION!!!

This supplement is for changing the mail preferences in Netscape (specifically Netscape Navigator Gold 3.0), and assumes that you have been using Netscape.   If you have an early version of Netscape (2.xx), we suggest that you download a more current version.

SERVER SETUP

1.  Bring up your Netscape browser.  (You do not have to be “on-line”).
2.  Click Window

4.  Click Options
5.  Click Mail and News Preferences
6.  Click the Servers tab. A window like the one below should appear.

 

NOTE: The Mail directory and the News RC Directory should already be setup.
(There is no need to change anything in the Mail or News windows and the paths do
not have to be the exact paths in the window below.  DO NOT CHANGE THESE).

8.  Type mail.rivnet.net for the Incoming mail (POP3) server.
