Q:

Can you show me how to send an email?

A:

To send an email, you must have access to an email service, know the email address of the person to whom you want to send a message and have an idea about what kind of message you would like to share. Most email services make sending emails fairly simple, so it should take no longer than a few minutes to send a short message.

  1. Sign up for an email service

    Choose which email service you would like to use to send your email. Some popular email services include Gmail, Yahoo Mail and Hotmail. Register for service by visiting the site for one of the email services and completing the appropriate fields on the registration form.

  2. Open a new message window

    Click the text or button on the page that says something like "New" or "Compose." This opens the message window you will use to send the email.

  3. Enter the recipient's email address

    Type the email address of the person you want to receive the email in the "To" field of the email.

  4. Enter the Subject

    Type a brief message in the "Subject" field of the email. This should be a concise statement that details what the purpose of the email is. Examples of subjects might be "Vacation Plans" or "Meet My New Dog."

  5. Enter the message

    Type the message you want to share in the message field. Most email services allow you to make this message as long or as short as you want.

  6. Send the email

    Click "Send." The email is now sent to the desired recipient.
