Should I use Netscape 7.1 or Mozilla?

I'm on Mandrake 9.2. I'm thinking of switching to Netscape 7.1 because:

1) Thunderbird can't read IMAP protocol from Netscape Webmail (Only possible through Netscape Mail)
2) I like the button that toggles the side-bar in Netscape. (located above the sidebar)

However, my concern is, will Mozilla and Netscape 7.1 conflict with each other? How do I replace Mozilla with Netscape safely?

you shouldn't need to

i've had both running on mandrake before with no problems

i don't use browser mail facilities though so can't answer that apsect of your question

i use sylpheed-claws (the email program with the most unlikely name) and firefox

I'do the utmost to have Mozilla, Firefox or Thunderbird. they're all much better than Netscape which is bloated and I believe is based on an older version of Mozilla.
However I know nothing about Netscape Webmail -- You have to think about it : do you need it? Is it really good and useful?

Good luck,
