Field Explanation


The New button will open the compose message window. There is also a setting to open/compose a message in a new window.  This setting is described in the Account Settings section. 


To reply to a sender select the Reply button. This will invoke a reply message window that acts similar to a compose new message window except the address of the recipient and sender are automatically entered. 

Reply all

The Reply all button is used when to reply to a message when the message was sent to several users and the reply is required to be sent to all original recipients.  These users are automatically entered in the To field of a reply when Reply All is used.  The Reply All button will also include the senders address in the new message.


When an email is received and the message is to be sent on to another email address, the Forward button can be used.  This is similar to replying to a message, however instead of a blank window, a new window already containing the original message to be sent on is displayed.  From here, enter any recipients that are to receive the message in the TO, CC or BCC text boxes.


If a message is to be deleted or moved to the Deleted Items folder, select the Delete button to remove the file from the current folder list. To disable the option for Move deleted messages to 'Deleted Items' folder please see here review the Account Settings section


This will report the message as spam. For information about this option please inquire with your administrator.


The printing of an email can be done through this screen as long as a working printer and driver are installed. After selecting the button a print preview screen is displayed. To continue to print the selected message, select the Print link in the top left hand corner of the print preview screen.
