Reading Mail

When you log on to Outlook, your Inbox folder appears, and any new messages you've received are downloaded from your ISP's (or your company's) mail server. If you use Internet mail and a dial-up connection (in contrast to DSL or cable modem connections, which are always connected), a dial-up connection must be made before Outlook can check the mail server for new mail.

No matter what the connection situation, after you download any new e-mail to your computer, the new mail appears in the Outlook Inbox (see Figure 5.1). If you watch closely when you connect to your network or Internet service provider, a downloading mail icon appears in the lower right of the Outlook window, showing you that new mail is being received.
