How do I configure my username to be user@my.isp.invalid?


Q. How do I configure my username - user@my.isp.com? The @ sign doesn't work.


A. If you have a USER.JS file then add the following line:

user_pref("mail.allow_at_sign_in_user_name", true);

If you don't have a USER.JS file then create one using NotePad and name it USER.JS

Add the file to your Profile directory, the same place where PREFS.JS is located.

Don't forget to do all this with Netscape closed.

Works for Netscape Communicator 4.xx, Netscape 6.xx, and Netscape 7.xx


Another workaround that users have reported to work, specifically our WindowsBBS Administrator, Arie:

Add the "%" character in place of the "@" character to your user name.

Example:

ramona%domain.whatever
