Netscape 7.2 was horrible when it was current and it is ancient now.
Do yourself a favour, update to SeaMonkey. It's the same codebase, but
a decade more polished, and it uses the same file formats for
mail/news as Netscape Communicator, the old Mozilla suite and
Thunderbird. The reason being that it's the latest version of the same
code as Netscape 7.x and Mozilla Suite.
