Netscape Communicator Problems

I would really appreciate some help with regard to the use of e-mail using Netscape Communicator 4.05 for Mac (version for Power Mac), which I downloaded from Netscape twice -- the second time being an unsuccesful attempt to remedy the problems cited below.

Inside the "Local Mail" folder are several other folders titled:

Inbox
Unsent Messages
Drafts
Trash

1. How do I get messages placed in "Unsent Massages"?  I have tried "Save", but on closing the message, it disappears and is not found in "Unsent Massages".

2. I thought there was supposed to be a folder for "Sent Massages".  I cannot find it.  Currently sent messages get placed in "Drafts", which I selected in "Preferences" because the only options available are the ones listed above.  Where might "Sent Massages" be?

3. Currently inbound messages deleted from inbox are routed to "Drafts".  Is there a better place to which I can route them, and where might I find it?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi
Inside the local Mail folder or indeed inside any of the lower directories (such as inbox), you can create new folders. So you can have whatever hierarchy you wish and once created these new directories will appear in the preferences for outgoing mail. You create a new folder from the "file" menu.
If you do not appear to have a sent folder just make a new one.
If you wish to move mail messages from one location to another there is a menu option under "message" called "file message", this allows you to place any mail messages from your inbox into another directory, to allow you to store your mail in a more organised manner. So it is not necessary to save a mail message from the "file" menu, which is what I think you said you had done, unless you wish to save it out to your file system as a text file.
Hope this helps.

Hi again..
NOTE all the references to menu items in the answer I supplied are all Netscape menu items and not the Finder.
