Lesson 14. Joining a Discussion Group > Reading and Replying to a Message

Reading and Replying to a Message

In addition to creating messages, you'll want to read the messages from others and reply to them. You can respond to a message form the message its self or from the database window. Follow these steps to read and respond to a message.

  1. From the database window, double-click any message you want to read. Notes opens the message, displaying the topic, author, date, and category at the top (see Figure 14.5).

    Figure 14.5. Open a message and read it, and then respond to it or close it.

  2. To respond to the message, choose the Respond tool button. The New Response window shown in Figure 14.6 appears.

    Figure 14.6. Enter a message in response to the one you just read.

  3. Enter your topic and your message in the New Response window.

  4. (Optional) If you need to refer to the original message, click the Preview Parent button on the tool button bar. The screen splits in half so you can see both the original message and your response.

  5. When you finish the response, click Save and then Close.

  6. Close the original message to return to the discussion database window.
