Sending Messages

Composing a basic message in Windows Mail is straightforward, and it isn’t all that much different from composing a letter or memo in WordPad. There are a number of ways to get started, not all of them well known. Here’s a summary:

  • In Windows Mail, select Message, New Message; press Ctrl+N; or click the Create Mail toolbar button.

  • In Internet Explorer, pull down the Page menu and then choose one of the following commands:

    Send Page by E-mail— Select this command to create a new message with the current web page as the content of the message.

    Send Link by E-mail— Select this command to create a new message with a URL shortcut file attached. This file is a shortcut for the current website that the recipient can click to load that site into Internet Explorer.

  • In a web page, click a mailto link. This creates a new message addressed to the recipient specified by the link.

  • In Windows Explorer, right-click a file and then click Send To, Mail Recipient. This creates a new message with the file attached.
