I installed Netscape 7.1 and made a typing mistake in entering incoming mail address. Now I cannot change my preferences to correct this error. Uninstalling netscape and removing all references to netscape in the registry were ineffective. The preferences data is hiding somewhere in the registry but I don't know where.

I can uninstall and re-install any number of times. Always comes up with the same preferences which I don't see a way to change.

Open the netscape mail program then click edit / mail & newsgroup account settings / click on server settings then try to change what is listed.

Do the same for outgoing server.

If that doesn't work you can create a new mail account and delete the old one.

Can you high light on the folder and then delete it?

I made a new folder for address and called it my backup address.
I then had to Collected Addresses folder and delete each address but I high lighted the list and then clicked the Delete button and it worked.
After I emailed a test email to my self and I did not get any new address in the Collected Addresses folder.

Solved my problem. I tried to make a donation but I get a message saying I can't be two things at the same time.

What did you do?

You have to use the same name, user name and email address you did when you signed up here.

Just what did it say?
