I've always found that 'guest@' is sufficient to get into an anonymous
FTP site. Then again, I'm a paranoid sort of person, and I don't use
Netscape for mail, so I never enter an email address into Netscape's
email entry. It's never stopped me from getting into an anonymous FTP
site (wonder what it sends when it's blank?).
