Chapter 6. Exchanging Messages and News > Reading and Replying to E-Mail

Reading and Replying to E-Mail

You can receive e-mail anytime day or night—even when your computer is turned off. You can retrieve your e-mail manually or set Outlook Express to do so automatically. When you start Outlook Express, the program checks for new e-mail. It continues to check periodically while the program is open. New messages appear in the Inbox along with any messages you haven't stored elsewhere or deleted. Message flags may appear next to a message. You can respond to a message in two ways: reply to it, which creates a new message addressed to the sender(s) and other recipients; or forward it, which creates a new message you can send to someone else. In either case, the original message appears in the message response.

Open and Read an E-Mail

Click the Inbox icon in the folder list for the mail service you want to view.

Click an e-mail message to read it in the Preview pane.

Double-click an e-mail message to open it in its own window, making it easier to read.

Click the Previous or Next button on the toolbar to read additional e-mail messages (if any).
