Like most email systems within any open message you can: • reply to sender, reply to all (cc) or forward the message to another address • With your new webmail system you can also: • add the addresses of everyone in your incoming email to your address book with one click! • TIP: Develop a good file management system with your new email by organizing your email into folders and delete unneeded emails regularly.

Once you’ve created your folders, return to the Inbox and select the email you want to move. Click on the Move to Folder box and select the folder you want to move to and it’s moved! TIP: To quickly find an email use the Revise option – it’s like a search.
Your address book (list of contacts) is another area you can organize in your email system. Contacts can be added through an open email Add Addresses, but you will not see them until you UPDATE you list. Warning – Add Addresses adds all the contacts in the email. You can also add Contacts through the New Contact Feature…
Contact Feature… Once you’ve added contacts to your address book you can use the Search option to find specific contacts. You can also use the “Group” Feature to send email to a specific set of teachers, for example the English Dept, or Math Dept.!

When the message is displayed with the full header information, Press CTRL A (select all) then CTRL C (copy) Then compose a new message to firstname.lastname@example.org and paste the header and message body into the new message and send.
