The description you choose or enter will appear above the message in
the Reading pane and message window, as well in the Reminder message
box, as shown in Figure 3-9.

message box to appear.

shown in Figure 3-9, where you can double-click the name of the e-mail
message to open it. See Chapter 5 of this mini-book if you need to find
