Elements of an e-mail program

An e-mail program has elements that help users format, send, receive, and manage their messages. To send an e-mail message, users need to fill out the necessary fields in the header, write the message in the text box, and then click Send. Users can read and manage messages that they receive by using the Inbox. They can also forward messages to others. When users are finished with a received or sent message, they can either file or delete the message.

Structuring a header

All e-mail messages share a basic structure. The header is a block of information at the start of an e-mail message that identifies the sender, the recipient(s), the subject, and the date and time the message was sent, as shown in Exhibit 1-1. Sometimes you’ll see a Cc: line in the header, which gives the addresses of people who have received carbon copies of the message.
