Netscape 4.x --> 7.x

By tbragsda ·
Who knows Netscape mail 4.x and 7.x

My CEO upgraded his wife?s LT and desktop wks to Netscape 7.?. All email, folders etc were ?lost?. I PCAW into the desktop, and see the directory that the old version of Netscape used for folders etc, and messed with it a little, moved the contents to the location where the new version stores such things, but nothing yet.

So the problem, how do you move the contents of Netscape mail client to ver 7.x?

Use Mozilla Instead

by TheChas In reply to Netscape 4.x --> 7.x

For whatever reason, Netscape deleted the ability to import 4.X mail files after the first version of Netscape 6.
Quess they just assumed that everyone would upgrade every time they released a new version.

Interestingly, Mozilla (the core code of Netscape) has the ability to import 4.X mail.

You are faced with a multi step process to recover the old mail.

1. Export the mail for Outlook Express, or import the files into Outlook Express.

2. Then import them into Netscape 7.

Or, convince your boss to give Mozilla a try www.mozilla.org

One BIG advantage of Mozilla, is that it does not have all the AOL links and tie-ins built-in.
