Un-X Enable Email Address Collection and un-X Enable address autocompletion. Please see Figure 24.

Plans are to revisit the e-mail settings in a follow-up article.

Wrapping Up the Basic Configuration

That's enough tutorial for today. You now have the more important privacy and security related preferences set. Instructions for setting other preferences, and also display options, are in an upcoming MozillaQuest Magazine article.

However, now that you understand how preference setting works, please feel free to check out all the Netscape preferences and set them as you see fit to do.

Switching Netscape 6 skins (AKA themes) is very popular. The theme preferences are located in the Themes subcategory under the Appearance category. That's a good place to start setting preferences on your own.

Taking Your Netscape 6 On-Line for the First Time

Today's tutorial is meant to provide you with the minimum installation and configuration help that you should need in order to get you up and running with Netscape 6.0. A follow-up, more advanced, tutorial already is in the works. So please stay tuned and check the MozillaQuest Magazine front page, mozillaquest.com, from time to time for the next article in this very informative and helpful NS 6 tutorial series.

Now that you have completed the Netscape 6.0 installation and basic configuration parts of this tutorial, it's time to take NS6 on-line for the first time. To do that, please close NS6 to make sure all your installation and configuration choices are recorded.

Next, plug your computer back into your modem or LAN and get connected to the Internet. Then type your favorite Web site's URL into the location box on the navigation bar (may we suggest mozillaquest.com), hit go, and start Web-surfing away to your heart's content.
