Sending Mail

To send the message, click the Send button or the Send and File button in the Action bar:

  • Send—Sends the message to the recipient’s mailbox and, by default, saves a copy of your message in the Sent view.
  • Send and File—In addition to sending the message, you are given the option of storing a copy of the message in a folder. For more information about creating folders, see Chapter 4.

To save a message as a draft, click the Save As Draft button in the Action bar. Your message is stored in the Drafts folder. At a later time, you can open the message by double-clicking the message from the Drafts view. The document is automatically opened in edit mode.
