Sending Mail

To send mail to an address that is in the address book while on the main menu page, position the cursor over the Compose button. This will display a list box that says Compose a message to. Click on the list box (not on the Compose button) and all of the addresses in your address book will be displayed. Select an address and a new message will be opened with the selected address displayed in the To field. Note that this list will not be displayed if there are no addresses in the address book.

To send mail to an address not in the address book:

  1. Click the Compose button. The Compose page is displayed.

  2. In the To, CC ("carbon copy"), and BCC ("blind carbon copy") text boxes, enter the e-mail addresses of the message recipients. You can type or paste e-mail addresses into these boxes, using a comma to separate multiple addresses. You can also use the Addresses section to insert names from your Address Book as follows: select a name in the scrolling list and then click the appropriate button (To, CC, or BCC). Repeat for each name you want to add.

  3. Add all recipients to address book. If you select this option, all e-mail addresses in the To, CC, and BCC areas will be added to your Address Book.

  4. If you want to spell check your message, select the dictionaries that you want to use. Then click the Spell Check button.

  5. Attachments. Click the Browse button to select the file you want to attach, or type the path and name of the file into the box. Then, click Attach. To remove an attachment, select a file in the list and click Remove.

Optional Settings

Save message in Sent folder: If you select this option, a copy of the message will be saved in your Sent folder.

Include Signature: If you select this option, your signature will be appended to the message. If this check box is NOT checked, your signature will not be appended.

Edit Signature: Click Edit Signature on the left tool bar if you want to modify your signature in any way.

Save a draft of the message: Click Save on the left toolbar to save a copy of the message in your Draft folder. You can later select the message, modify it, and send it.

See Preferences for options you can use to customize how your mail is sent.
