Chapter 10. Exchanging Messages Using Mail > Composing and Sending an E-Mail

Composing and Sending an E-Mail

E-mail is becoming the primary form of written communication for many people. E-mail messages follow a standard memo format, with fields for the sender, recipient, date, and subject of the message. To send an e-mail message, you need to type the recipients e-mail address, type a subject, then type the message itself. You can send the same message to more than one individual, to a contact group, or to a combination of individuals and groups. If you type multiple addresses, you must separate the addresses with a comma (,). If you have multiple accounts, you can select which account you want to use to send the e-mail message.

Compose and Send an E-Mail

Click the New button on the Mail toolbar.

Type the e-mail addresses or names of each recipient or groups.

Type the e-mail addresses or names for those recipients or groups who should receive a carbon copy of the message.

Type a subject that indicates the purpose of the message.

To send a blind copy (address not included in recipients' list) of your message, type the e-mail addresses, names, or groups.

IMPORTANT Click the View menu, and then click Bcc Header to display the Bcc field ().

Type the content of your message.

If a red dotted line appears under a word, Control-click the misspelled word, and then click the correct spelling.

If you have multiple accounts, click the Account pop-up, and then select an account.

Click the Send button on the toolbar.

Messages wait in the Outbox until they are sent out, and then copies appear in the Sent mailbox.
