Reading Your E-Mail in the Inbox Window
Being notified that e-mail has arrived
Take the e-mail arrival quiz. Winners get the displeasure of knowing that
they understand far more than is healthy about Outlook. You can tell when
e-mail has arrived in the Inbox folder because
A) You hear this sound: ding.
B) The mouse cursor briefly changes to a little envelope.
C) A little envelope appears in the notification area to the left of the
Windows clock. (You can double-click the envelope to open the Inbox
folder.)
D) A pop-up desktop alert with the sender’s name, the message’s subject,
and the text of the message appears briefly on your desktop.
E) All of the above.

Chapter 3
The answer is E, “All of the above,” but if four arrival notices strike you as
excessive, you can eliminate one or two. On the File tab, choose Options,
and in the Mail category of the Options dialog box, go the Message Arrival
area and change the settings.
Reading Your E-Mail in the Inbox Window
Messages arrive in the Inbox window, as shown in Figure 3-5. You can tell a
thing or two about messages by glancing in the window:
Unread messages are shown in boldface type.
Messages that you’ve read (or at least opened to view) are shown in
Roman type.
In the Folder pane, a number beside a folder tells you how many unread
messages are in those folders. (The number in square brackets beside
the Drafts and Junk E-Mail folders tells you how many items, read and
unread, are in those folders).
To read a message, select it and look in the Reading pane, or to focus more
closely on a message, double-click it to open it in a Message window, as
shown in Figure 3-5.
