Normally it's best to let Netscape use one STMP server to send all your mail. If you wish to change the server, user ID and password for the SMTP server, go to the Edit Menu and select Properties. Select the Outgoing Server (SMTP) and make your chages there. If you would like to add another outgoing mail server account, click on the Advanced... button to add a new account. When sending email you will have to specify to use the new SMTP server or the default one will be used.

When you first check for new mail on your new account, Netscape will ask you for your incoming mail server password. Click on the checkbox in the password window to have Netscape remember your password.

Having Trouble Sending Email?

If you are having troubles sending Email, it may be due to your ISP locking the SMTP port to use only their server. You can try using Active Web Hosting's alternate SMTP port 587. If that doesn't work, you will have to use your ISP's SMTP server and log in with your ISP username and password for SMTP or sending mail only. You will need to contact your ISP for further instructions on setting up your email client to use their SMTP port.

To set up Netscape to use a different SMTP port for your Active Web Hosting account, follow these steps:

  1. From the Edit Menu, select Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings.

  2. On the left side, click on Outgoing Server (SMTP)

  3. On the right side, type in 587 for the Port setting.

Now you should be able to send your Email via your domain's mail server. If this does not work, contact your ISP to learn how to set your Email client up to send from their SMTP server instead.
