Hi. I'm a longtime Netscape user (since 2.x) who's used 4.61 for ages. I'm now contemplating 6.2 and just installed 6.2.1 from CD. I have two questions regarding mail:
(1)Is mail stable enough to rely on? I use Netscape 4.61 as my mail client and am pretty happy. But I hate the idea of using NS 4 for mail and NS 6 for browsing. In scanning the forum archive, I came across an April '02 post from "Cherokee" that said:
"I have used both 6.2.2 and Mozilla0.9.9. I find both programs to be very fast, and excellent for browsing. The Mail & Newsgroups are still problematic, and I would recommend not using either as your default Mail program."
Would someone care to elaborate on what's "problematic" and provide thoughts about sticking with NS 4?
(2)I've found the location of the NS 6 mail folders (under ...Profiles/Application Data/...) and wonder if (and how) I can change that location. It puts it in a rather small partition on my disk that is space-challenged. (And no, I don't want to reorganize my disks.)
I found a field "Local Folders" under "Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings" accessible from the Edit menu of the mail app. The field looks editable, but I can't imagine relocating all your mail folders is as simple as editing this field.
Thanks for any help that you bright folks can provide. The Netscape site sure seems useless for help beyond the most elementary.
