Chapter 2. Sending Mail > About iCards

About iCards

iCards aren't part of your .Mac e-mail account, but they work closely with it. Your .Mac account comes with hundreds of high-quality electronic greeting cards that you can send to anyone via e-mail. There are a number of categories to choose from (just like going into your own Hallmark store), including seasonal cards, birthdays, romance, get well, and several others. If you're feeling extra-creative, you can send a custom iCard—one that contains your own pictures—rather than using one of the prefab pictures.

To send an iCard

1.
Go to www.mac.com and log in to your .Mac account.

The main .Mac page loads.

2.
In the toolbar at the top of the page, click the iCards link (Figure 2.95).

Figure 2.95. Click the iCards link in the toolbar to be taken to the main iCards page.


The iCards page loads.

3.
Click the card you want to send to select it.

The Compose/Edit page loads (Figure 2.96).

Figure 2.96. On the Compose/Edit page, you can create your own custom iCard.


4.
Click the radio button next to the font you want to use.

5.
In the message text box, type your message (Figure 2.97).

Figure 2.97. Type the message you want to send in the text field.


6.
In the lower right corner of the page, click the Continue button.

The Address & Send page loads with the name and e-mail address associated with your .Mac account already entered in the appropriate fields (Figure 2.98).

Figure 2.98. Enter the pertinent address information for your iCard on the Address & Send page.


7.
In the “Enter your name” field, type your name if the information that's already entered is incorrect.

8.
In the “Enter your email” field, type your e-mail address if the information that's already entered is incorrect (Figure 2.99).

Figure 2.99. Type the e-mail addresses to which you want to send the card in the e-mail addresses field.


9.
Do one or more of the following:

  • From the Choose a Quick Address pop-up menu, choose the e-mail addresses to which you want to send the card from your Quick Address list.

  • In the “Enter emails” field, type the e-mail addresses to which you want to send the card. If you want to send the card to more than one email address, separate multiple addresses by commas.

  • Click the Address Book button to select e-mail addresses from your .Mac Address Book. Check the boxes next to the addresses you want to use, and then click Return to Card (Figure 2.100).

    Figure 2.100. Check the boxes for the addresses from your Address Book to which you want to send the iCard.


10.
In the upper right corner of the page, click the Send Card button (Figure 2.101).

Figure 2.101. Click the Send Card button to send the iCard.


The card is sent to the e-mail addresses you've specified, and you're given a hearty congratulations on a job well done (Figure 2.102).
