You can send mail in a variety of ways. You
might choose to compose a new message
or perhaps to reply to an existing message.
Whichever method you choose, however,

The Compose Window allows you to set, among
other things, the message recipient's
address (who you are sending mail to), the message
subject, and the message contents.
Simply fill out the appropriate fields at the
top of the window only the To: address is required,
but the subject: is suggested and type your
message in the large lower field. Once you

It is important that e.mail is not stored on
