Sending and Receiving Email

Email is super easy to use, but there are actually a bunch of cool tricks to it you may not know about. This section tells you how to send a message more quickly, how to create your own personalized mail schedules, how to clean up those annoying > characters that litter forwarded email, and more.

Email in a Hurry

You can easily speed up your email composition by creating a desktop icon that automatically opens a new email message. Then, when you want to send a message, all you have to do is double-click that icon, type your message, and shoot it off.

To set up an email desktop icon, right-click your desktop and choose New Shortcut. In the Create Shortcut box that appears, type mailto: and click the Next button. Type a name for the shortcut, like Send an Email, then click Finish. From now on, whenever you double-click that icon, your email program immediately opens a brand new message.
