Changing software program from Netscape

Yes, I have been living in the past, but loved my old Netscape. (browser and e-mail) I am ready to change. Can anyone suggest an e-mail program/software? I do not wish to change my internet provider, only the Netscape stuff.

Firefox without a doubt is the best browser. it's fast, safe and there are plenty of add-ons available for it. you can go here to download --

as far as e-mail --
if you want web based e-mail you could just use your internet provider. or go with Hotmail.

if you want a Desktop Aplication - thunderbird is popular and comes from the same people as firefox

Download thunderbird here ---

Hope this helps

How do I enlarge font especially on e mails


To change the size of text in your email messages:
  1. Click the "Mail Options" link in the upper-right corner of the page.
  2. Click the "General Preferences" link.
  3. Next to "Font Size," select your preferred font size. "Smaller" will make the font of messages one size smaller than your browser's default setting; "larger" will make the font one size larger.
  4. Once you have chosen a new font size, click the "Save" button to activate your new settings.
  5. Yahoo will confirm the changes by displaying, "Your changes have been recorded."
Please note that the above steps will affect only the text of your email messages, and only those messages displayed in plain text (the fonts of HTML messages will not be affected).
To change the font size of all of the text in the Yahoo interface, you must change the default font size of your browser.
Internet Explorer users:
  1. In the View menu, choose "Text Size."
  2. From the menu that appears, select your desired font size.
  3. Your selection will take effect immediately.
Netscape users:
  1. From the Edit menu, choose "Preferences." This will open up another window.
  2. Click on the "+" symbol to the left of "Appearance." Note: Netscape 6.0 users will see a little triangular arrow.
  3. Select "Fonts."
  4. Netscape will display your current font settings. Make all desired changes and click "OK."
  5. Your selection will take effect immediately.
To change the font size of other browsers, please refer to your browser's help files.

Browsers like Mozilla/Opera/Crome/Netscape crashing
This issue is common for many using WinOS XP SP3, Vista, Win7 etc as Microsoft has made malicious programming codes in-built into their Explorer that makes other browsers work unstable....
There was a law suit which MS lost on this issue...now they have to allow other browsers to work in tandem....i guess this issue is not there in XP currently as the updates in there are not built to crash other browsers...so try XP...also try not to use Auto update enabled in the Control Panel/Security Ctr (disable it). I guess only a fresh clean install of OS with Auto update disabled can keep the updates from making changes to Mozilla/Opera/Google Crome/Netscape etc browsers...other than IE.

Note: Irrespective of which Win OS you are having keep the Auto Update Turned OFF, that way you will have less problems and the machine will be more stable, more often the Auto Update makes unnecessary changes to the OS which is not required at all…the Auto Update is in the Control Panel/Security Center. I have had many issues with Auto updates in the past, after disabling it since 1 year no issues in OS and my machine is more stable than earlier.
Keep these Settings in Security Center:
Firewall – ON, Auto Update – OFF, Virus Protection – ON and updated

Help needed to send questions to members on Craigslist


HI,
You should be able to go and open up Yahoo and then go in and send a message from there. Yahoo is a web based email so there is no need to set up a POP or STMS. If you can get into Yahoo just type in the email address of the craigs list person and send it that way. If you go into Craigs List and highlight their email address and then go into yahoo and paste it there you should be able to send it. The windows mail is popping up because that is set as your default mail client. Just ignore it for now and if it pops up just close it. If there is any other questions don't hesitate to ask, Best wishes.

How to scan to email


dear customer,
these are some of the ways to do it.. hope its useful..
VistaScan - Scan to Email

VistaScan's direct email link requires either a MAPI (Microsoft Exchange compatible system) or VIM (Lotus cc:Mail system) messaging program - these are commonly used on corporate networks and aren't installed on normal consumer PCs - home and small business users can scan-to-email via PageManager or by attaching images as described below.

vsemailsetup.gif
VistaScan 3.1 scan-to-email preferences for the commercial MAPI and VIM messaging systems - to reduce the size of file attachments the JPEG file format is recommended.
MAPI programs include Microsoft Outlook 97 and 98 (which can also be used with normal Internet mail accounts) and the latest Netscape Messenger client.

Outlook 98 is a commercial software package (not included with Windows), with support for Internet mail systems, Exchange Server or Lotus cc:Mail messaging servers. outlook98.gif
VistaScan 3.1 application used with Microsoft Outlook 98 - scan-to-email is selected as the destination for the image When VistaScan is used with either a MAPI (Exchange) or VIM (ccMail) mail system it will detect the presence of the software via the Windows registry and automatically launch the client and a new message window, with the single file attached - the message must then be written and sent before the scanner driver can be used again.


Sending images to Email Clients using Presto PageManager 4.0

Presto PageManager is a useful way to capture and archive scans before sending them to another program (eg image editor, word processor) or to print. A few email programs can be linked with PageManager, allowing an image to be "dropped" on a Application Button to automatically open a new message with the scan attached. Microsoft Outlook 98, Netscape Messenger (aka Netscape Mail), Lotus cc:Mail and Eudora Pro 3.0 can all be added as email applications - Outlook Express, Compuserve and AOL cannot be directly linked (these are limitations of the mail programs, not of PageManager!).
pmoutlookbutts.gif comm46butt.gif OutLook Express cannot link with PageManager - a new email won't be opened when selected. PageManager adds an Outlook Express button automatically. Outlook 98 will correctly open a new email and attach the scan(s). PageManager won't setup Outlook 98 automatically, it needs to be Registered as a new application. Netscape Mail will correctly open a new mail with attached scans when selected. The Application Button is setup automatically by PageManager.
Preparing Files for Email Clients

As many Internet email programs do not support Exchange or cc:Mail, the two commercial mail systems integrated with UMAX software, you may have to prepare your scans: the images to be sent need to be saved on your hard disk in a suitable file format, ready to be "attached" to an email.

In general it is better to send as small a file as possible by email, as the image has to be transferred to the Internet over a relatively slow modem link - most users prefer a compressed file format such as JPEG (.jpg). This compresses your scan to a fraction of the original size, although it does slightly reduce the quality of the images.

There are three ways you can save your scans to disk:

1. If you use the VistaScan program (Start, Programs, VistaScan 3.x, VistaScan) you have several choices in the "Scan To" box (Advanced mode).

vsscantofile.gif
Click on the Floppy Disk icon - this will then use the settings in the VistaScan preferences:

vsscanfileprefs.gif
For emailing scans we recommend the JPEG format - check where the scans will be saved (which directory). File names are created automatically - scan1.jpg, scan2.jpg etc.

2. If you normally scan your images in to PageManager you can export them to your hard disk - right-click on the thumbnail view and choose 'Save As...':
pmsavepic.gif
Choose a file location and select the "Save as type" file format.

3. If you are aquiring the VistaScan driver via any other application (eg Adobe PhotoDeluxe) then you should have options to save the images and to change their formats - please refer to the instructions for each application for for further advice.


Attaching images to an Email

All email client programs will allow you to combine file atachments and your text in to a single message for sending - although there are small differences in the way attachments are encoded you normally only need to customise options if sending to someone with an Apple Mac, which supports slightly different graphics file formats. Below are instructions for attaching files in some of the more common email programs:


America OnLine (AOL) (3.0I)

In the Email menu choose Compose Email (Ctrl+E):
aol.gif
At any time while you write and address your email you can click on the Attach icon on the left of the window - this then lets you select the files to be sent.

Compuserve (CIS) (4.0)

In the Compuserve program choose "Create New Mail" from the Mail menu:
cis.gif
During writing and addressing your mail message you can click on the button "Attach File:" - this lets you browse your computer to select the scans to be sent. To make finding the files easier, change the "Files of type" setting to "Graphics Files". Once the files are selected Compuserve shows a second window of encoding options - the default (Binary) will be suitable for almost all emails.

Microsoft Outlook Express

Outlook Express is one of the most common Internet mail clients, and is included with many Windows 98 systems and on ISP disks - this basic mail program also lets you attach files to your emails. Click on the Compose Message button:
outlookexpress.gif
While writing your email message you can click on the paper clip icon (shown above) or choose "File Attachment..." from the Insert menu.

Netscape Mail / Netscape Messenger (Communicator 4.6)

The most recent version of Netscape Mail can be linked to PageManager or the VistaScan driver, however many users want to attach scans in the normal way - click the New Msg button to open a Composition window:
comm46.gif
While writing your email message click on the Attach button and choose File... - locate and select your scans.
