How To Set Up An E-Mail
May 27, 2015
To sum it up, an existing e-mail is imperative for
everyday activities nowadays, it's just because, In general, a social media
required an e-mail of yours, to set up an account: (example: Google
Plus my favorite), hehe
Today's age of computers, mostly all companies that offer
free software's online may require an e-mail, (i.e. if you want to download a
free game, a free photo editor application to enhance your personal pictures,
etc.), you perhaps need to provide an e-mail as a requirement, more so that you
as a user can be provided with an update later on.
To sign up for the first time, type google mail on an
Internet browser then click on create a new account, (a phone number is
required to verify your account if you have no any other existing e-mail to
provide, Simply enter all mandatory fields, (e.g. First Name, Last Name,
Gender, etc), choose a secure password; don't forget to jot down all the
information's you provided for a back-up document in the future, then after
filling up the form, you must click on "agree" to the company's
conditions to set up a new e-mail account for you.
Some free web mail providers out there also are MAIL.COM,
Yahoo, Hotmail, and so on. You can chose though whoever you want, my apologies.
Apparently, an e-mail message uses the same format as a
standard memo; it includes, From, Date, To, and Subject lines, typically
followed by the content of the message. To... line: indicates who the recipient
of the message is, (it includes CC:, & BCC); Subject... line: is for the topic of your message, usually in
bold capital letters; (I.E. BIRTHDAY
PARTY OF MY BABY), From... line: your web mail supplies your name or e-mail,
& Date... line: (depends on what device you use), the computer or your
phone automatically supplies the actual date you send the message.
Remember that when you're sending a message, there are
three types of e-mail “recipients”, namely: Primary-(TO), is the first
individual to whom you intend to send the message; Secondary- (CC), are the
interested parties who want to receive a copy of the message and
Tertiary-(BCC), Blind Carbon Copy-(bcc) bcc'ng someone is very important, if
you want to send someone a message but that someone prefer (to be bcc'd),
meaning to hide such an individual's certain e-mail address from everybody receiving the same message.
You will find your Inbox folder which stores all your
messages you received from all your contacts. Outbox are composed messages that
perhaps aren’t successfully sent to your contacts due to failed delivery
usually because of mistypes or invalid e-mail addresses. While your Sent Items folder accommodates all
the messages you successfully sent, meanwhile Drafts folder stores all those
messages you created but haven’t finished and sent it yet, unless you’ll delete them, otherwise they
will be there waiting for you to edit and send to your recipients. Deleted
items folder is similar to a computer’s Recycle Bin, it will store all your
deleted items until you’ll restore or delete them permanently. Contacts folder
is being created by the E-mail holder and that is no other than you; you can do
this option, by doing; Go>Contacts option on the E-mail’s Menu Bar then
select “Add new contact by filling up the form and then click on Save”.
In general to send an E-mail, first thing to do is compose
the message so click on Compose or New button, and then afterwards click on
Send button. You perhaps can attach files by clicking Attach File/Insert File
button then follow prompts, whether the files are inside your
Computer/Download/ folders (it depends where you stored your files though).
