Sending Email

When you finally arrive at the main Outlook Express screen, you’ve got mail; the Inbox contains a message for you. The message is a welcome from Microsoft, but it wasn’t actually transmitted over the Internet; it’s a starter message just to tease you. Fortunately, all your future mail will come via the Internet.

In order to receive and send new mail, you must use the Send & Receive command. You can trigger it in any of several ways:

  • Click the Send/Recv button on the toolbar. (It’s identified in Figure 12-1, which depicts Outlook Express after you’ve been living in it for a while.)

  • Choose ToolsSend and ReceiveSend and Receive All.

  • Press Ctrl+M.
