    hello...Netscape communicator is web based e-mail... you can't download the e-mail server but have to have Netscape to get it.

    also Nerscape Messenger is another one but its setup using pop3 ... so you can use it to get your mail imported from Outlook Express... it also has its own icon to click on... taking you to it direct.

    Yes there is an option in I.E. to use Netscape Messenger.
    But you do have to download Communicator to get the Messenger.
    Communicator 4.79 is (recommended.
    http://sillydog.org/narchive/fulldata.html

    (full) officially called Complete Install.
    (base) Base Install (Win only), same as Complete Installation but
    without extra third party multimedia programmes such as RealPlayer,
    Winamp. Basic multimedia function still included.

    So you could get the Communicator 4.79 (Base, 17.1MB)

    Thanks for the info & the great links Hewee & SavvyLady. So as I was wishing for just the Netscape E-mail program it looks like I'll have to do the "Basic" d/l. I've been using Outlook Express for couple of years & I even tried Eudora for awhile. Not bad proggies at all. I even have AOL for my kids but that's not a "real" e-mail program as far as I'm concerned! Could the two of you tell me your recommendations? Well that's about all I have to say,, Special thanks people,,,

    cooldep,

    "I just shaved my stache off, Weird!"

    Ya and your upper lip feels funny too. Right:p

    Ok your welcome.
    You do have to download what I said but can used just the Netscape Messenger.

    I use Communicator and Netscape Messenger and always have.
    I feel a lot safer also using Netscape Messenger then Outlook.
    Look at all the virus that go after Outlook.
    Netscape Messenger is very easy to use and I would not want any thing else.

    Need help with it just ask.
