Configure Your Computer's E-Mail Software

E-Mail Set-Up: Netscape Messenger
Before you can use Netscape Messenger to send and receive email for the first time, you need to set up your email preferences. You may have entered some or all of this information into the User Profile wizard the first time you launched Communicator, but we'll proceed as if you hadn't entered any information.

 
Step 1.

Make sure you have all the information you need to set up your account. If you don't, contact InterCity Services for the details of your email account. Here's what you'll need:

  • Your real name.

  • Your user name.

  • Your password.

  • Your full email address.

  • The address of your INCOMING mail server: pop3.intercityweb.com.

  • The address of your OUTGOING mail server: barracuda.intercityweb.com.

 
 
Step 2.

From the Communicator menu bar select COMMUNICATOR, and then MESSENGER MAILBOX.
 
 

Step 3.

Select EDIT, and then PREFERENCES from the Communicator menu bar. The Preferences dialog box will appear.

 
 

Step 4.

In the category list at the left of the Preferences dialog box, click Mail & Newsgroups. If the Mail & News list is not expanded, you can do so by clicking the expander arrow (the plus sign) to the left of Mail & Newsgroups.

 
 
Step 5.

In the Category list, click IDENTIFY. That panel of the dialog box will move to the front. In the appropriate text boxes, type your Name, Email address, and Organization (optional).

 
 
Step 6.

In the Category list, click MAIL SERVERS. That panel of the dialog box will move to the front.

In the OUTGOING mail (SMTP) server text box, type the address of your outgoing mail server: barracuda.intercityweb.com.

In the INCOMING Mail Servers area of the dialog box, type the address of the incoming mail server: pop3.intercityweb.com.

From the Server Type drop-down menu, select POP.

In the User Name text box, type your user name for this email account.

Click OK to close the Mail Server Info dialog box and return to the Preferences dialog box.

Click OK to close the Preferences dialog box and return to the Messenger window.

You're all set!
