Netscape 7 Configuration
|First Time Configuration|
|The first time you run Netscape, it will bring up a Netscape Network Registration screen. If you already have a screen name through America Online, CompuServe 2000, AOL or Netscape Instant Messenger, or Netscape's Netcenter, then enter your screen name and password and click Next. If you do not have a screen name, click on the Register Now button to create a screen name. This will activate some optional additional features of Netscape 7. If you click Cancel, you will be asked for confirmation. Click Yes.
Netscape 7 will then start up. The first time you activate Mail, a New Account Wizard comes on the screen. To set up your CalWeb e-mail account:
|Adding A New User|
|Netscape 7 uses a feature called profiles. This allows each person to have their own mailbox and favorites separate from the other users of that machine. To set up a second profile:
1. Click on Start, then Programs, then Netscape, then Profile Manager.
Now, whenever you start up Netscape, you will be prompted to select a user's profile, then click Start Netscape to start the browser. The first time you run Netscape, you will be prompted to activate the product. Follow the instructions for First Time Configuration.
|Verifying E-mail Account|
|In order to verify your e-mail configuration in Netscape 7, follow these instructions:
1. Make sure that you are in the Mail potion of Netscape 7.
5. Click on the Server Settings and verify the following:
6. Click on the Outgoing Server (SMTP) and verify that the Server Name is smtp.calweb.com. Unless you are accessing your CalWeb account from another provider, the "Use name and password" should not be checked.
|Multiple E-mail Accounts|
|Netscape 6 allows you to check multiple e-mail accounts within a profile. To add a new e-mail account to be checked:
1. Go into the Mail portion of Netscape.
|CalWeb employs a Spam filtering system called Spam Assassin which marks suspected Spam messages with the word *****SPAM***** in the subject line. You will need to set up a Mail Filter for each account in order to transfer the Spam messages to the Trash folder. To set up filtering, follow these instructions:
1. Click on Tools and select Mail Filters.
Once this rule is set up, all e-mail marked as Spam will be moved to the Trash folder.
|To send a file attachment
To send a file with a mail message, create a new mail message. Click on the Attach button or click on File and select Attach File. A dialogue box will appear allowing you to select the files that you wish to mail out.
NOTE: Consider the end user. Large attachments take a long time to both upload and download. Attachments larger than 3MB may be rejected by the mail server.
To open a file attachment
WARNING! Many computer viruses can be transmitted through file attachments. Before opening a file attachment, be sure you know who is sending you the attachment and if you were expecting the attachment. It is recommended that you have a virus-scanning program installed and the latest anti-virus definitions installed. CalWeb is not responsible for any damage to your computer if you open an virus-infected file.
|Message Checking Interval
Click on Edit and select Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings. If necessary, click on the arrow next to the account name so that it points down. Click on Server Settings. Check off the line that says "Check for new messages every" and enter a time in minutes. Click OK.
Prompt For Password
To remove a stored password: Click on Tools, then Password Manager, then Manage Stored Passwords. Select the tab Passwords Saved. You should see a "site" that begins with "mailbox://". Select the mailbox and click on Remove. Then, click OK.
Mail Left On Server
To leave a copy of the message on the server: (not recommended) Click on Edit and select Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings. If necessary, click on the arrow next to the account name so that it points down. Click on Server Settings. Check off "Leave Messages on server". Then, click OK.
IMPORTANT! If you elect to leave mail on the server, we highly recommend that you periodically check your e-mail box using the CalWeb web mail interface to delete messages that are no longer needed, otherwise excessive disk usage charges will occur. (Note: Be sure to hit the Empty Trash button before logging out of the web mail interface to remove the deleted messages from the Trash folder.)
Hang Up After Downloading
Once this option is activated, whenever you download a message that is larger than the set size, you will see the first few lines of the message followed by: "Truncated! This message exceeded the Maximum Message Size set in Preferences, so we have only downloaded the first few lines from the mail server. Click here to download the rest of the message." When you click on the here, the entire message is downloaded to your computer.
IMPORTANT! This will leave the large messages on our mail server. You should periodically check your mailbox using the CalWeb web mail interface to check and delete the large messages, otherwise excessive disk usage charges will occur. (Note: Be sure to hit the Empty Trash button before logging out of the web mail interface to remove the deleted messages from the Trash folder.)
Send Messages Immediately
Outside Access to CalWeb's Mail Server
|Occasionally, it may be necessary for you to send us the complete message headers. These headers contain the complete path that the message took through the Internet rather than just the From, To, Subject, and Date that you see as part of the message. To send us the complete message headers, first click on View, then Headers, then All. Click on either the Forward button, or click on Message, then Forward. The message will then contain the necessary headers. To turn off the message headers, click on View, then Headers, then Normal.|
|You will need to be in the mail section of Netscape. To create a news account to access the UseNet Discussion groups:
1. Click on Edit, then Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings.
The first time you select the newsgroups, you will need to click on the news folder (usually labeled news.calweb.com), then click on Subscribe to Newsgroups. A complete list of newsgroups is then downloaded to your computer. This will take several minutes. You will then be able to search for and subscribe to the discussion groups that you want to read.
