E-mail (PS)

It's hard to imagine not having at least one e-mail account these days. The explosive use of the Internet has brought e-mail to the masses. You may have an account on your company's e-mail system that's connected to the Internet, a home account through your ISP, an account with a free Web-based e-mail provider, or all of the above. In just a few short years, e-mail has become as widely used and accepted as the telephone—a task, for the latter, that took the majority of a century.

Virtually every new computer sold today ships with some form of e-mail program, and the Mac is no exception. In this section we take a look at a few of the options available to the Mac for connecting, communicating, and managing e-mail. This section focuses primarily on Internet e-mail and not commercial workgroup-based e-mail programs (such as Microsoft Exchange or Lotus Notes), and it assumes that you have already obtained an e-mail account with your ISP. (If you have Web access but are unsure as to whether you have an e-mail account, you should check with your ISP. Most ISPs bundle at least one e-mail mailbox with Internet access services.) If your Mac is connected to the Internet, then you're on your way to being able to communicate using e-mail.
