Chapter 11. Receiving Email > Reading Messages

Reading Messages

You can read email in the Preview pane or in a separate message window—whichever method is convenient for you at the moment.

To read a message

1.
In the Folders list, select the folder in which the message is stored, such as the Inbox.

2.
Do one of the following:

  • Click a message header in the message list. The message appears in the Preview pane (Figure 11.8).

    Figure 11.8. The simplest way to read messages is to select a folder, click a message of interest, and then read it in the Preview pane.

  • Double-click a message header in the message list. The message opens in its own window (Figure 11.9). Toolbar icons across the top provide message-handling options.

    Figure 11.9. Some people find it easier to read a message in its own window.

3.
Read the message, scrolling as necessary by using the vertical scroll bar or pressing .
