Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a new message, part of Outlook 2013 Essential Training.
So far, we've only talked about reading and organizing mail, now it's time to…start writing some email.…To create a new email message, make sure you're in the mail part of Outlook and…from the Home Ribbon, choose New Email.…This brings up a blank email.…Now the first thing that we need to do is decide who the email is going to be From.…I have more than one Outlook account set up, I can click the dropdown and…choose which one I want it sent From.…After that, I can come down to the To Field and just start typing if I'm…sending it to somebody who's already in my address book, or if I know a…different email address completely.…
I can also click the To button …and it'll bring up all my address books that I can choose from this way.…For example, this is my Exchange address book and I can highlight all name and click To…if I want to add them to the To List …or any other field such as Carbon Copy, so they get a copy of the email.…I can use the pull down menu in the address book and choose from my local Contacts.…
