"Address Book" icon
on the tool button bar (looks like a little Card File).
Your Address Book window should open up. Select the
"New" button on the bottom of the window.
Another window will open up where you fill in the name
of the person you want to add to your address book.
After typing in the name select the "Okay"
button which will close the window back to the address
book and place your curser in the right-hand part of the
window, where you MUST now enter the person's email
address (email@example.com). Now close the program
and it will ask you if you want to save the changes -

book, by selecting the "Address Book" icon,
selecting the person you want to mail to, then selecting
the "To" button. This will open a letter
already addressed and ready to write and send. You may
also open a letter window, then select the "Address

program. The first time you log on, you will have to
enter your password, but it will then save the password
(if you checked that box in the setup) and you won't
have to enter it again. The program should automatically
retrieve your mail from the server and notify you if you
have mail. If you wrote letters off-line and saved them
in your "Outbox", those letters will be sent
before your new mail is retrieved and a letter
"S" will appear next to them in the
"Outbox" telling you they have been sent. Any
unread mail in the "Inbox" will have a bullet
by it, until it is read.
13. Any mail deleted from any mailbox will go into
the "Trash" mailbox. Letters deleted from the
"Trash" mailbox are gone for good.
