Helpful Pointers for using Outlook:
- Outlook (OL) automatically checks for new messages periodically while the program is open and you are connected to our service. If at any given time you want to force the software to check for messages immediately, simply click the Send and Receive button in Internet Mail.
- If OE seems to hang while sending and receiving messages, you can restart that process by telling it to Stop and then click Send and Receive again.
- To write a new message, simply click on the New Mail button. Make sure you enter in the full Internet e-mail address correctly to ensure the message gets where it's supposed to go.
- When replying to a message, just click the normal Reply button. This will send your reply to the author of the message that you're replying to.
- If a message you're replying to was sent to a group of people, you can click the Reply to All button to send your reply to everyone on the list, but it is advised that you do this only when necessary.
