Lesson 3. Email Basics > Sending Mail

Sending Mail

When you have completed spell check, you can send the message or you can save it as a draft to send later (see Figure 3.9).

Figure 3.9. A completed message can be sent or saved in the drafts folder. The body of the message is a rich text field and can contain formatted text or pictures as shown here.


To send the message, click the Send button or the Send and File button in the Action bar:

Send— Sends the message to the recipient’s mailbox and, by default, saves a copy of your message in the Sent view.

Send and File— In addition to sending the message, you are given the option of storing a copy of the message in a folder. For more information about creating folders, see Chapter 4.

You can set a user preference to automatically perform a Spell Check on every mail message you create. It is highly recommended that you set this option. Open a mail memo and choose Tools, Preferences from the Action bar. On the Basics tab of the Mail section, select Automatically check mail messages for misspellings before sending. Click OK to close the window.


To save a message as a draft, click the Save As Draft button in the Action bar. Your message is stored in the Drafts folder. At a later time, you can open the message by double-clicking the message from the Drafts view. The document is automatically opened in edit mode. When you’re ready to send the message choose Send or Send and File in the Action bar.

If you attempt to close the memo before you send or save it as a draft, a dialog box appears asking whether you want to send, save, or discard your changes. Click the appropriate button to properly close the memo.
