as long as Netscape has the Communicator component it should work. Navigator
doesn't have an email client. At a station at work we have NS(Navigator) 4 (no
email client) .... when an email adress is clicked, MS Outlook launches for
email automaticaly ... same in IE. This may be just a Mac thing ... how it
automatically detects that Outlook is an email app, I dunno ... I sure as heck
didn't tell my computer it was an email app.
