PreferencesThere are many configuration options in Communicator which will affect the way that Communicator operates or appears. Luckily, these preferences rarely need to be changed from the defaults that were installed with the installation of the software. I would recommend that unless you are quite experienced with the use of your computer and the use of Netscape, that you not adjust the preferences.
User ProfilesWhen Netscape was installed, the user entered relevant information such as their E-mail address, mail server, newsgroup server, etc. But what if more than one person were to be using your computer? What if that person were using an entirely different mail server and E-mail address? It becomes necessary for each user to have their own user profile. Each profile can be setup to appear on the screen the way that each user prefers. One person may like to start Communicator with Navigator and the Component Bar floating, while the other user prefers to start in Messenger with the Component Bar anchored. You can each have your own separate address books. If there is more than one profile setup for Netscape, a
"Select Profile"box will be displayed after any of the components is launched. Simply select the appropriate users profile and click
To create an additional profile for another user, follow the steps below.
The User Profile Manager also has two other useful features. It will allow the user to rename a user profile or completely delete it. Very handy in the case of a change of staff or someone has a name change.
