    Hi, I have been using Netscape mail for several years. About 6 months ago, I started having this on my mail account; I log in to my mail, and it says "You have 0 messages." If I click on "get messages",all of my new messages come up. How can I get the mail to say you have 10,12,14,etc. messages instead of 0.It's a very small irritation,but it is an irritation.Any suggestions? Marilyn

    The forth box leaves your email on the server. You may not want that and you would not be able to get to it or delete it with netscape so it just fills up on you.

    But you can from some ISP's that have it setup to get your email online or you could use http://mail2web.com/ to get to it.

    Another look and I see your right.

    hewee runs off to get some coffee. :p

    Ok but the 4th one will just download any new email and I would not use that.
    I have MailWasher to check my email for spam and if you checked that box you would download all new email at the what set time you setup. Not a very good way to control spam Mobo.
