Getting Caught Up on
Web E-Mail Basics
Whether you’re catching up on juicy office gossip or deleting spam from
Nigerian oil tycoons, you can log on to Outlook.com from any browser to
keep yourself in the loop.
Reading messages
Because Outlook.com is web mail, you can get to it anywhere you have web
access. All of your Hotmail, Messenger, and (of course) Outlook.com mail is
available. Lots of people use the Inbox as a kind of to-do list; Outlook.com
makes that possible from any computer connected to the Internet.
To read your messages, follow these steps:
1. Click the Inbox.
Your list of messages appears.
2. Click the message you want to read.
The message text appears in the Reading pane on the right side, or
bottom, of the screen. As you click each message in the Message list, the
contents show up in the Reading pane.
Use the arrow keys to move from one e-mail message to the next. Click the
icon that looks like a gear (in the far-right side of the Ribbon) to adjust your
mail settings, see a list of Reading pane options and Ribbon color options,
and get online help. You can have the Reading pane open on the right or on
the bottom, or closed entirely. If you close the Reading pane, you’ll need to
double-click any message to see it in a separate window.
Sending a message
When you feel the urge to dash off a quick e-mail from your favorite Internet
café, you can do that with Outlook.com in a jiffy. You’ll probably have your
message finished before your barista finishes mixing that High-Octane Mocha
Latte Supremo. After your caffeine jitters die down, just follow these steps:
1. Click the Inbox in the Folder list.
Your list of messages appears.
