But your "from" is always the same, unless you change it in netscape

Also, netscape's IMAP will only let you have one account for a mail
server. Last week, I set up netscape IMAP mail to read from the
"problem" account on mail.wsu.edu. I wanted to read my mail at the same
time via IMAP (on the same server), but it wouldn't accept that, said I
could only have the mail server in there once ("This server is already
added to the list"). This is a bug in the linux client, it crashes
