Dealing with email attachments
Changing your email signature
The first email message was sent back in the early 1970s. Programmer Ray Tomlinson doesn’t remember the exact text but guesses that it was probably something like “QWERTYUIOP.” Although that’s not as memorable as the first telegraph that was sent (“What hath God wrought?”) or the first telephone message (“Mr. Watson, come here. I want you.”), it’s one for the history books.
Today, email has become far more functional and necessary, well beyond Mr. Tomlinson’s early tests. Although you could impress your email buddies by sending them “QWERTYUIOP,” you’re likely to send and reply to more meaningful communications. Your Android tablet is happily up to the task.
