Re: [IP] HTML, Outlook Express and Netscape Communicator Posts
I am using Netscape 3.04 Gold and have never had it crash on e-mail. I
like it because it will follow links and addresses that are included in
messages without using a whole lot of different buttons and keystrokes.
It doesn't like HTML most of the time, though.
Your messages have always worked just fine on my browser -- they are in
plain text style on my end.
I have heard of Pegasus but I have never tried it. Like I have said
before -- I just don't have much more room on my hard drive for
anything. I only have about 75 Meg of available space left.
