Chapter 15. Communicating with Outlook > Creating and Addressing an E-Mail Mess...

Creating and Addressing an E-Mail Message

When you create an e-mail message, the Untitled Message window opens with all the tools you need to communicate electronically. Your first step is addressing the message. You must identify who will receive the message or a copy of the message. For each recipient, you enter an e-mail address. You can enter the address manually by typing it in the To or Cc box, or you can select an address from your list of contacts. If you enter multiple addresses, you must separate the addresses with a semicolon (;). You can type a semicolon after each recipient's e-mail address, or you can just press Enter after a recipient's address. Addressing a new message also means indicating the purpose of the message by entering a subject. Try to indicate the intent of the message as briefly and clearly as possible.
