Buttons

September 8, 2006

As part of learning the interface, I’m going to explain what each button does.

Buttons Bar
Get Mail – checks the email server for new messages and sends any messages you have waiting to go out.

Write – opens a blank email.

Address Book – opens up your address book.

Reply – opens an existing email and allows you to reply to the sender.

Reply All – opens an existing email and allows to you reply to the sender and all the other recipients.

Forward – opens an existing email and allows you to send it to someone else.

Delete – throws an existing email away.

File – allows you to move an email to another folder.

Junk – labels a message as “junk mail”. If your Junk Mail Controls are setup, it will also move the “junk” message to the Junk folder.

Print – allows you to print an email.

Stop – stops Thunderbird from contacting a server.
