Last Modified: 2013-12-16
I have configured my Win95 Inbox to retrieve internet mail
using the Netscape Internet Transport. My access to the
Internet is via Winproxy installed on another Win95 Ethernet client. What I want to do is to configure Inbox
to download my email from my personal mailbox at netaddress.com after connecting to the company's mailbox
through the internet provider which is via dial-up!
Modification ====>> I want to get my personal mail using
my employers dial-up account from a windows95 client using
another windows95 client as an internet Proxy!

Thanks in advance for your help!

Please give more detail.

if your talking about getting your work email from home
your company may (and prob does) have a firewall up so a dial up isp wont see the address as valid. we get around this by allowing
dial-ins to you NT server.

You could get your company to set up a secure internet tunnel.
Digital have such a product.


Edited text of question
in the pop and smtp sections in your options, just put in the ones for your personal server, eg: mail.aol.com
Then put in your username & password when requested.


Check in your mail clients documentation if u don't know where these settings are.
