What is Email?

Email in the very basic terms is electronic mail. You simply type a message on your computer and send the message digitally through the internet to your recipient. No longer does it take 3 to 5 days to deliver a message like postal mail. This makes staying in touch with people much easier and efficient. You will need 3 things to send an email: an email address, a program used to write the email, and an internet connection to send the email. 


Email Attachments, what are they?

Attachments are additional files that are not part of the message you wish to send with the email. These can be a many different types of files including pictures and test documents. Keep in mind, the larger the file attachment to the email the longer the message may take to send.
