Email, which is also known as electronic mail, is
a very widely used application of the Internet. You can send a
message to anyone, located in any part of the world. You can also
attach documents, images, and other digital media to your email
and also send it to someone. It's a great form of communication!
An example of an email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. The
"someone" part of the email address is the username of the email
address holder. The "somedomain" part of the email address is the
location of the server where the email resides on. Many people can
share the same domain, but the usernames will be unique.
There are three things that you need to enter to successfully send
an email to a recipient. First, you have to enter the recipients
email address in the "To" box. Second, you need to enter a subject
of your email in the "Subject" box. Third, you need to type your
message into the "Message" box. Once you have all three items of
the email completed, you can click send and your email will be
sent to the recipient you specified in the "To" box.
Now that you know something about email, let's discuss
which are some general rules to improve communication on the
Internet and in email messages.
