E-mail • E-Mail means “Electronic Mail” • A way of sending messages electronically from one E-Mail user to another. • You can sign up for a free e-mail account • You can use your E-Mail from any computer E-mail address • You need an e-mail address to send an electronic message to someone.

  6. Four Key Pieces of Information • E-mail address (ex: joe55@gmail.com) • Username (ex: joe55) • Password (ex: hockey2323) • Web address of e-mail service (ex: www.gmail.com)

  7. How to Access Your E-mail You can access your e-mail anywhere you get Internet – a computer at home, at the library, at a friend’s house. You must go to the web address of your e-mail provider (such as www.gmail.com) From there, you will have to enter in your username and password.

  8. Signing up for E-mail • Type the web address of a e-mail provider in the address bar of your browser: • www.gmail.com, mail.yahoo.com, www.hotmail.com • Click on Create an Account • A web page will appear asking for your name, birthday, gender, and other items. • You will be asked to create a user name and a password.

  9. What is a User Name? • The user name is a unique name that identifies you to your e-mail service provider and to recipients of your e-mails. • Your user name will appear before the @ symbol in your e-mail address: • joe@gmail.com • When you create your user name the e-mail provider may not let you use it. That’s because someone else already has that user name. • In that case, the e-mail provider will offer suggestions that are currently available.

  10. What is a Good Password? A good password should be at least 8 characters long. It should contain upper case letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. It should not be a recognizable word. The e-mail provider will let you know if the password is weak, medium, or strong. Don’t use a password you use for something else. Change your password periodically.

  11. Protect Your Password! Memorize your password or write it down in a SAFE PLACE. Try not to keep username and password in the same place. Do not place a written copy of your password on the side of your monitor, under your keyboard, etc. Shred the written copy as soon as you have memorized your password. Do not allow anyone to look over your shoulder while you are entering your password. Change your password immediately if you think it has been stolen.
