With Netscape Communicator 4.01 loaded I try to load EudoraPro4.01 The Computer crashes. I loaded  PC Medic 97 and it will trap the error and gives the following info. With IE4 loaded there is no problem Netscape seems to be the guilty culprit.

DDEML.DLL caused exception "General Protection Fault" in module DDEML at 167F:36F1

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I Really don't want to have to settle for the E-Mail clients in Netscape or IE4.

Hi,

   I think your best shot right now is to upgrade Netscape to 4.05 (the new release).  Netscape has stated that this release fixes a lot of bugs from previous versions.

Also, this document from their site goes into detail on how to operate 3rd party mail programs with Netscape 4.3 and above.

I found the answer on the Eudora site the solution was to delete the Windows display section of the Eudora init file.
Simple but worked

Thanks for the suggestions.
