Yes, but it may depend which Netscape version.  It worked for me with 6.0,
but I heard that 4.7 does not work.  Note that you have to put % in place (or whatever domain you had if a pre-SBC Yahoo user
who has migrated to SBC Yahoo).  I typically use Kmail for my SBC Yahoo
mail, and pine for everything else.

PS: I also got both sendmail and postfix working as SMTP AUTH client to
relay through smtp.* servers (which are really all CNAMEs for
main server).

1. Win95 box sending goofy DNS requests like WWW\.YAHOO\.COM

Ok, I've got a Linux box running as the server for my little home lan,
IP Masquerading, name server running, etc.  I've had one Win95 box
connected in for quite a while, with no problems.

Then I hooked in my brother's IBM Thinkpad laptop computer.  Set it up,
and hostname lookups weren't working.  On the Linux box, I kicked named
into debug mode and watched what was going on.  It turns out that this
laptop is making it's DNS lookup requests with a \ before each period.
Lookups that do not have a period, work fine.

Anyone else seen this?  Know of a solution, or any help??
