Picture yourself opening the mail. On the front of
the envelope it says in big bold letters that “You have won TEN
MILLION DOLLARS.” Then, of course, in teeny tiny print it says “if
you are the lucky winner.” It has your name printed in big letters right
there on the certificate! The funny thing is that each of your neighbors

lots of other types of correspondence. And let’s not forget the hard working
trash collectors. They might be out of work if it weren’t for all the junk mail
we all receive!
This chapter is all about mail. Creating envelopes, labels, and mass
mailings are all easy tasks when you use Word.
