Time spent in forums:
You can have a number of different user profiles setup in Netscape
Communicator. (For example there are currently 13 setup on this
machine -- most of which are on various ISPs too). Once you have more
than one user setup, before Netscape's browser actually loads a new
small Select Profile menu pops up allowing you to select which of the
user profile's you want to use.
To start setting it up, close Netscape (if loaded) and click: Start|
Program Files|Netscape Communicator|Utilities|User Profile Manager.
You'll need the following pieces of information:
o User's Full Name (i.e., the name that will appear on outgoing mail)
o Email Address (i.e., the address that will appear on outgoing mail)
o (Profile Name [defaults to the user-name portion of email address])
o (The default new user's directory is displayed and can be changed)
o Outgoing mail [SMTP] server (e.g., smtp.netcom.com)
o Mail server user name (i.e., your mailbox name / e.g., shamrock)
o Incoming Mail Server (e.g., pop.netcom.com)
o News [NNTP] server (e.g., news.netcom.com)
That's it. Now you're ready to load Netscape using that user's profile
and then alter whatever you like in Edit|Preferences. Any changes made
to this profile, such as bookmarks, homepage, cache directory and
whatever else you like, do not effect any other user's settings.
