To convert Netscape mail,use the Import and Export Wizard.
Start Outlook
Choose the Import and Export from the File menu
Select Import Internet Mail and Addresses from the Choose An Action to perform list,and then Click Next
Select the Internet Mail Application to Import from list,click the Netscape product you want to import (Netscape Mail or Netscape Messenger)and then click Next
In the Select The Destination For Imported Addresses section,click either Outlook Contacts or Contacts is theonly choice in the Internet Mail Only installation of Outlook because this option does not use the Personal Address Book

I believe you would control which email program loads from Control Panel. Go to Internet Options and the the PROGRAMS tab. In there you will see the option to change the default email program. Hope that helps. Rob

Although both previous answers are partially correct, make sure to remove the mailhost information from the Preferences (Edit menu, Preferences, Mail) in Netscape; otherwise you could inadvertantly still be using Netscape to download & send mail. Also, make sure all the settings in the Options of Outlook are setup (Tools menu, Option, Mail Services).
