Email is the most widely used Internet application used. It is a great way to communicate with your friends, family and colleagues around the world. Here are some basic instructions on how to use email.
To send and receive email you first need an email program such as Outlook Express, Netscape Mail, etc. You can download an email program from our download page. Second, you need an email account. This is included with your La Plaza Internet access dial-up account. Remember, all programs behave differently. These steps are meant to be general guidelines, not step-by-step instructions for all email programs. Consult the help menu provided to you in your program for specific details.
How do I receive mail?
Open your email client. Click on the button or menu option that says Get Msg, Deliver Now, or Check for new mail. Make sure you are first connected to the Internet if your program does not automatically connect you to the Internet.
How do I send email?
First, you need to open your email program. Again make sure you are connected.. From there, click on the option that says Compose Message or New Message. This should open a new window. Enter the email address of your recipient in the To field and a short subject in the Subject field. You may leave the cc and bcc (if area at the bottom of the window. Press Send when you have finished the message.
A mailing list (or listserve) is a group of email addresses that can all be reached by sending a single message to one address: the list address. Messages sent to the list are distributed to each of the list subscribers. By sending messages to the list, subscribers can have ongoing discussions with each other and need only keep track of one address.
