  1. Log in to your email account

    Find the user name and password boxes on your email service's webpage. After you enter and submit your user name and password, the email page opens in the browser. This page contains a list of all your incoming email messages, as well as various menu options.

  2. Open a blank email form

    On the email page, find and click the "Compose" button. For most email services, the "Compose" button appears on a menu on the left side of the screen. When you click the button, a blank email form appears.

  3. Enter the recipient's email address

    A typical email form contains three boxes: the "To" box, the "Subject" box and the "Message" box. In the "To" box, type the email address of your intended recipient. In the "Subject" box, type a subject line for your message. In the message box, type the body content of your message.

  4. Click "Send"

    The "Send" button frequently appears at the bottom of the email form. Click this button to send the email.
