Reading and Replying to E-Mail Messages
Outlook has a couple of ways to tell you when you receive an e-mail message.
The status bar in the lower-left corner of the Outlook screen tells you how
many e-mail messages you have overall in your Inbox and how many of those
are unread. The word Inbox in the Folder list changes to boldface type when
you have an unread e-mail, and when you look in the Inbox, you see titles of
unread messages in boldface as well; see Figure 4-3.
To open and read an e-mail message, follow these steps:
1. Click the Mail button in the Navigation pane (or press Ctrl+Shift+I).
The Inbox screen opens, showing your incoming mail.
2. Click the title of the message you want to read.
The message opens in the Reading pane, and you can see the text of the
message (as shown in Figure 4-4). If the message is really long, click
anywhere in the Reading pane and press the down-arrow key or the Page
Down key to scroll through the text.
When you’re done reading the message, repeat the process for the next
message you want to read.
