Part 2. Creating E-mail Messages > Creating and Sending a New Message

Creating and Sending a New Message

In Mail view, click the New button in the Outlook toolbar. An Untitled Message window opens.

In the To field, type the recipient's e-mail address. (To send the message to additional people, separate each address with a semicolon.)

In the Subject field, type a subject for the message.

INTRODUCTION

When you want to use Outlook to send a message to someone, you open a new mail message. You then enter the person's address, type a subject for the message, and type the contents of the message. This task covers the basics of creating an e-mail message; other tasks in this part provide more details, as well as other options for creating e-mail messages.


TIP

Using Alternate Programs

This book uses the Outlook mail program for creating messages. You can also use Word to create e-mail. See “Changing the Mail Program” and “Using Word to Create E-mail” in Part 4.


Click in the message area and type a message.

Click Send on the Message window's toolbar. Assuming you are online and have set up Outlook to automatically send your messages, the message will be sent.
