Sending an E-mail Message
E-mail is by far the most popular service on the Internet. Sending messages is a snap. Just follow these simple steps. (Although this example uses Microsoft Outlook, most e-mail programs work the same way.)
1. Open your e-mail program and launch a new message window by clicking on the appropriate icon.
2.In the TO box, type the name of the recipient. It should take this form: firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you enter the address correctly or the message will return to you.
You can send a message to more than one person by entering multiple addresses. Just put a semicolon (;) between each address.
You can also send a copy (cc:) and a blind copy (Bcc:) to multiple addresses.
Your return address is automatically sent to the recipient.
3. Type the subject of the e-mail.
4. Write your message in the message window. You can also copy text from a word processing program and paste it into the window.
5. Click the Send icon or select Send from the File menu and off it goes.
