Netscape Communicator Multiple E-Mail Accounts
Netscape utilizes user profiles to manage multiple users. A profile is an abstraction which contains all the settings and configurations for an arbitrary user. Everyone who uses Communicator has a user profile; if you have only one e-mail account then you still have a profile for yourself. If there is only one profile configured, then Netscape loads up with no startup prompts. What you need to do in order to make use of multiple e-mail accounts is set up additional profiles for each additional e-mail address you have such that Communicator asks you which one you wish to use when the program is loaded.
  1. From your Windows desktop, click Start, then go to Programs, Netscape Communicator, Utilities, and select User Profile Manager.
  2. Click New to bring up a wizard titled Creating a New Profile. Click Next.
  3. Enter your name as you want others to see it when you e-mail them, and add your e-mail address as well. Your e-mail address is your account username. Click Next.
