: Email: Netscape

Automatic Email Notification

I want Netscape to notify me automatically when I receive email. How can I do this?

  1. Click the Windows Start button and choose Settings, and Taskbar.
  2. In the Taskbar Properties window, click the Start Menu Programs tab.
  3. Click the Add button.
  4. In the Create Shortcut window, click the Browse button.
  5. Locate nsnotify.exe. It is usually in C:\Program Files\Netscape\Communicator\Program.
  6. Click once on nsnotify.exe so it is selected. Then click Open.
  7. Click Next.
  8. In the "Select a Program Folder Window", scroll down the list until you find StartUp.
  9. Click once on StartUp so it is selected, then click the Next button.
  10. Type the name that you want to see on the StartUp menu (i.e. Netscape Mail Notification) and then click Finish.
  11. If Windows prompts you to choose an icon, click one, and then click Finish.
  12. Now, when Windows starts, NSnotify will start and you should see the white envelope icon appear in the Systray of the Windows Task Bar (near the clock).
