MyNetscape is a proprietary service for Netscape users, the same way you must use IE for Windows to use many of the member services at MSN.com, or AOL's software to use AOL's services.

It for these same reasons (and many others) I gave up on MSIE/OE and stuck with Netscape. IE has some nice bells & whistles but the price in stability is just too high. Also, not mentioned here, is...
