Addressing and Sending E-Mail Messages
2. Enter the recipient’s e-mail address in the To text box.
The next topic in this chapter, “Addressing an e-mail message,” explains
the numerous ways to address an e-mail message. You can address
the same message to more than one person by entering more than one
address in the To text box. For that matter, you can send copies of the
message and blind copies of the message to others (see “Sending copies
and blind copies of messages,” later in this chapter).
3. In the Subject text box, enter a descriptive title for the message.
When your message arrives on the other end, the recipient sees the
subject first. Enter a descriptive subject that helps the recipient prioritize
the message. After you enter the subject, it appears in the title bar of the
4. Type the message.
Whatever you do, don’t forget to enter the message itself! You can spell
check your message by pressing F7 or clicking the Spelling & Grammar
button on the Review tab.
5. Click the Send button (or press Alt+S).
Messages remain in the Outbox folder if you postpone sending them or
if Outlook can’t send them right away because your computer isn’t
connected to the Internet.
If you decide in the middle of writing a message to write the rest of it later,
click the Save button on the Quick Access Toolbar (or press Ctrl+S) and
close the Message window. The message lands in the Drafts folder. When
you’re ready to finish writing the message, open the Drafts folder and
doubleclick your unfinished message to resume writing it.
Copies of the e-mail messages you send are kept in the Sent Items folder,
where you can review messages you sent.
