Email Encryption for Windows

Netscape Mail

To configure Netscape Mail to work with SecExMail, you will need the password given to you by your internet service provider (ISP) or your system administrator. SecExMail operates as a go-between or relay agent between Netscape Mail and your ISP's mail server. It encrypts and decrypts messages to and from people on your Friends list so Netscape Mail must be configured to send and receive mail via SecExMail. Follow the steps detailed below to configure a new email account in Netscape Mail for use with SecExMail. These instructions apply to Netscape 7.0

If you are modifying an existing Netscape Email account for use with SecExMail, please refer to modifying Netscape email accounts
