Configuring Netscape or Thunderbird Mail
Introduction
This section describes how to configure Netscape Mail 6.2x or later for use
with Desktop Messaging.
Before you begin, ensure that you have all the information required to
configure an Internet mail client. For more information, see “Requirements”
on page 52.
Note: If Netscape is set up with a POP e-mail account, you must set up a
different Netscape user profile for CallPilot. You cannot use a single profile
for accessing both POP and IMAP accounts.
Defining outgoing mail server settings in Netscape
Netscape is designed for use with a single outgoing (SMTP) server.
CallPilot messages must be sent using the CallPilot server—you cannot use
a different outgoing server for CallPilot messages. Ensure that you follow
these guidelines to ensure proper configuration of Netscape:
If you plan to use multiple mail accounts in Netscape, ensure that you
specify a separate outgoing server for CallPilot. The CallPilot server should
not be set as the default outgoing mail server for all your mail accounts.
CallPilot server rejects e-mail messages with addresses or attachment types
that are not supported by CallPilot.
Feature limitations
Netscape 6.2 and 7.0 releases do not support authenticated logon to an
LDAP server. Without this support, you cannot view distribution lists in the
CallPilot Address Book.

must associate your CallPilot mailbox with the
CallPiot server once you are finished in the
Account Wizard.

You must use the CallPilot server as the outgoing mail server for your
CallPilot mailbox.
