Chapter 17. Emailing with Outlook > Composing a Mail Message

Composing a Mail Message

Take a moment to think about a conventional “snail mail” letter. Each letter needs a delivery address where it will be sent, a return address, the body of the letter, and, of course, a signature. Email composed using Outlook has many of the same elements and a few more to make the email more useful. For instance, email includes a Subject line that cues the recipient to the subject matter of the email. In addition to the standard components of an email message, email created with Outlook can also tell the recipient whether the message is of high or low importance and whether a file has been attached to the message.

The next few steps take a look at each component of Outlook email and shows you how to create, address, and send email. Additionally, you'll learn to modify several of Outlook's options that enable you to track your message to its final destination.
