Checking and Sending Email

While viewing an email, you have several options available:

  • Reply: Sends an email back to the person who originally sent you the email.
  • Reply All: Sends an email to the person who originally sent you the email as well as anyone else who was listed on the original email.
  • Forward: Sends a copy of the email to someone else.

Alternatively, you can click the New Mail button on the top-left corner to start a new unrelated email.
