Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Composing new email messages, part of Computer Literacy for Mac (2015).
- There are basically three ways to compose…a new email message.…You can create one from scratch,…you can reply to an email you received,…or you can forward a message you received…to another recipient.…Let's start by taking a look…at creating an email from scratch.…In just about all clients…you'll click a button labeled something like,…New Message, or Compose, or New.…This opens a new message window.…Now you can fill out all the fields here in any order,…but let's work our way down from the top.…In the To field, you enter the email address…of the person or people you want to send this message to.…Your email can have any number of recipients…in the To field.…
In all email clients, you separate the email addresses…with a comma.…Now, as a general rule of etiquette,…you should only use the To field…for people for whom the message is directly addressing.…For example, if you're sending out…an invitation to a party,…you can put all of your guests in the To field.…Just realize that each recipient of your email…will be able to see the addresses of the other people…
