Chapter 17. Using Mail > Composing and Sending Messages

Composing and Sending Messages

To write a new email, click the New button in the toolbar or choose File, New Message (Command-N) from the menu. If you'd prefer to reply to an existing message, select that message in the mail list, and then click the Reply button or choose Message, Reply (Command-R). To address the outgoing message to everyone who received the original message and not just the original sender, choose the “Reply All” from either the toolbar or menu.

In addition to replying to existing messages, you can also forward or redirect them. The difference between forwarding and redirecting is that a forward is the equivalent of copying and pasting the original message and basic headers into a new email and sending it from your account. A redirected message, on the other hand, appears to come from the original sender. A forward is most appropriate if you want to include your own comments, whereas a redirect is better suited for passing an original message without any modifications to another recipient.

To forward or redirect a message, select it in the message list, and then choose Redirect or Forward from the message menu. You can also add forward/redirect buttons to the toolbar by choosing View, Customize Toolbar from the menu.
