Composing and sending email is one of the most essential communication tasks today. Evolution does this as well as any email application.
Before You Begin
145 About Email and Evolution
Open New Message
From the Evolution application window (select Programs, Evolution), select File, New, Mail Message.
When you have the Inbox selected (or any of the mail folders), you can quickly start a new email by selecting the New button on the toolbar.
Address Email/Open Address Book
To address the email, type a valid email address in the To box. If you want to select the email address from the address book, select the To button. The Address Book opens.
Select a contact or contacts and then select To:, Cc: (copy), or Bcc: (blind copy; main addressee does not see these email addresses) as needed. (You can add contacts in this way only if contacts have been added to your contact list.) After you have finished addressing the email, click OK.
Enter Subject and Body
Type a subject and a body for the message.
Select the Send button on the message. The message goes to your Outbox temporarily and then is sent to the recipient or recipients.
A copy of the sent message is saved in your Sent folder.
