Summary

This chapter has explained the basics of using the Mac OS X Mail application to send, receive, and organize e-mail from one or more e-mail accounts. OS X Mail is a powerful, high-quality application that makes it easy for you to make the most of e-mail communications. This chapter also discussed using the OS X Address Book, a standalone application that automatically integrates with OS X Mail, to manage names, e-mail addresses, and other information.

Electronic mail is just one way of communicating over today’s networks. E-mail communications are one-to-one communications that require you to know with whom you’re communicating. An even simpler mechanism of exchanging information with someone else is to publish information over the Web. Not surprisingly, Mac OS X contains a Web server that makes it easy to publish Web pages and make them available to anyone who can reach your OS X system over the network. The next chapter explains setting up a personal Web server on your machine and using it to publish your own personal Web pages. Due largely to the Unix underpinnings of Mac OS X and the availability of excellent, free software such as the Apache Web server, Mac OS X has all of the power you need to set up a powerful, secure Web server—and all with the usability that you’ve come to expect from any Macintosh operating system.
