How to set up your Email Account

The first thing to consider is what email software you should use. The most widely used software is Microsoft Outlook Express™ and it's easy to use, but it does have the disadvantage that virus writers tend to target it and you're more vulnerable to viruses attacking your PC. Alternatively, you could use Netscape Messenger which is part of the Netscape 7 Browser bundle. Version 7.1 even includes intelligent filtering of SPAM. Having said that, the choice is yours so here's how you configure both email clients.
