Using Email

If you Click the New Message icon a blank e-mail form appears. In the To box type the e-mail address of the person you want to send the message to. Then fill in the Subject line and finally type your message. When you are ready, click the Send Message icon. At this point one of two things will happen.

  • If you are not currently online, you will prompted to connect to the Internet.
  • If you are already connected to the Net the mail program will immediately log into the mail servers.

If you are not online and choose not to connect the message will be stored in the Outbox and queued for delivery the next time you connect to the Internet.

If you are already online then the message will be sent and your mailbox will be checked for new messages which will be downloaded to your Inbox.

If you want to check for any new mail select Check Mail icon or the Send and Receive button to download any messages from the mail server to your Inbox.

To read any message in your Inbox just select it. From here you can do several things; print a copy of the message, send a reply or delete the e-mail.

To send a reply to any message, just click on the Reply button. You will see that the reply is automatically addressed to the person who sent the original mail. The subject line remains the same as the first message except it is now prefaced by Re:

Below in the body of the message you will see the contents of the original message remain but have been automatically "quoted", as signified by the right-angle bracket at the start of each line. You can delete those lines which are not necessary.

Type in a few words, click the Send button and your message is on its way back to the original author.

You do not need to be connected to the Internet to create, read or reply to e-mail. By working offline you can create all your e-mail and queue it in the mail program's Outbox. When you next connect to the Net it can then be sent in one batch.
