When opening Mail/News, there is no prompt for my Netscape Webmail password,
only a long error box saying the security is corrupt and that i need to fix my
profile.  This was never a problem in Netscape 7.02 and right before I went to
Mozilla, i tried to update to Netscape 7.1 and installation went KA-BOOM!  Came
to a dead halt.  So, i decided to completely uninstall Netscape (both 7.02 and
what was copied of 7.1).  Now, there's a problem.  On a side note, this also
happens when accessing my saved password.

I've narrowed it down to a few things.

A) It doesn't like the idea that I had no password for the "PIMS 140 Internal
Cryptography" in Netscape.

B) Something was corrupted from my Netscape 7.1 install and carried over.

C) Microsoft is cursing me for switching off of IE.  (Highly Likely!)

Anyway, I hope this is detailed enough to solve the problem.  Thanks in advance.

Invalid for 2 reasons:
Mozilla mail can't access Netscape Webmail, and you should have created a new
profile to use with Mozilla.
