Quick Compose and Send
Outlook provides a lot of flexibility when it comes to creating and formatting
email messages. Often, however, all you want to do is to quickly create and
send a basic message. Here’s how:
If the Mail pane is displayed, click the New button on the toolbar
or press Ctrl+N to create a new, blank email message. If another
pane is displayed, click the down arrow to the right of the New
button and select Mail Message from the list. The new message
appears as shown in Figure 4.1.
Type the recipient’s address in the To field, or click the To button
and select a recipient from your address book.
Type the message subject in the Subject field.
