Email on 7.6.1

I got email working on os8.6 using classilla but in netscape 4.8 on 7.6.1 it doesn't work. How are you using email on system 7?

I happen to have a Synology nas that could help with this problem.

I think one of the problems will be that most email servers in this decade require SSL security certificates, which older systems and apps don’t support. 
 

I’m running OS X 10.4.11 and even with that I have to constantly click through dialog boxes to confirm security exceptions for sending and receiving email from my own Mac Mini mail server running OS X Server.

I have a Synology nas so I wonder if that could be what handles it. I know very little about that a stuff. Gonna do some reading.

What if I have a web server and domain? Could I configure something in cpanel so that I could access email without all the ssl settings?

Sometimes, I wish these things had a built in "I don't give a Sh**" menu option that would bypass all security issues at once!

Yes, but you'll probably need a VPS where you control the SMTP and POP3/IMAP server.
