4. Communicate Using Mail and Messages > Compose Mail Messages

Compose Mail Messages

If only we could sit back in lounge chairs, feet propped on a table, and read email all day long like the people in Apple’s iPad commercials. Alas, email demands interaction, so at some point you’ll find yourself writing new messages and replying to existing ones.

Create a new message

In Mail, do the following:

1. Tap the New Message button (image). An empty message appears.

2. In the To field, begin typing the name of the person you want to send the email to. Mail displays a list of possible contacts (Figure 4.13); tap one to enter it.

You can also tap the Add (image) button to view a popover containing all your contacts; scroll or use the Search field to locate a person.


Tip

You can type any part of a person’s name or email address to find a match; you don’t need to always begin with the correct address or the person’s first name.
