FROM: “email@example.com.” The FROM line contains your e-mail address. All e-mail addresses have 3 parts to them: (1) Name, such as “brad,” (2) the symbol “@,” representing “at,” and (3) A web address, such as “applebyarts.com.” There should not be extra spaces in an e-mail address, but some e-mail addresses may have an extra “.” such as “firstname.lastname@example.org.”
TO: “BoulderCityMagazine@gmail.com.” The TO line is where you put the e-mail address of the person that you wish to e-mail your message. You can also add more e-mail addresses to the “CC” (carbon copy) line and send the same e-mail message to several people at once. Use the “BCC” (blind carbon copy) option if you don’t want everyone on your “CC” list to see the addresses of people you e-mailed the message to.
SUBJECT: “Boulder City Magazine Now Online.” The SUBJECT line is the first line of text that your recipient reads before seeing the rest of your e-mail message. Be sure to put a short, clear, concise message in the SUBJECT line. Many virus and spam software programs send e-mail messages to the trash if the SUBJECT line is suspect.
BODY: “Check out our new web site.” The BODY of the e-mail message is your written information. Your written message can go on as long as you want (within reason).
ATTACHMENTS: You can attach pictures, files, text documents, or just about anything to your e-mail messages. You can also attach multiple files. Click on the ATTACHMENTS button of your e-mail program and choose the file you want to attach.
Before sending or receiving e-mail messages, be sure you have good anti-virus and anti-spam programs installed on your computer. These programs help keep viruses from entering your computer, and help weed out many of the unwanted e-mail messages you're sure to get every day. Happy e-mailing!
