|Entourage 2001 is the journal,
email and scheduling client included with the Mac Office 2001 suite. The
following assumes that Entourage 2001 has been installed correctly. For more
help than that which is provided here, see its 'Help' pull-down menu.
Entourage 2001 does not provide newsgroup access. In order to view the Usenet groups, you must configure an external program, such as Outlook Express, for this function. Green Apple provides documentation on these programs in our support library.

Composing And Sending An Email
To compose and send an email, you must bring up the email composer. To do this select Compose > New Message or click on the 'Compose Message' icon on the toolbar.
The email composer is divided into four regions. From top to bottom they are pull-down menus, toolbar, message header, message text. As all other toolbars in Outlook, the buttons on it are also available in the pull-down menus.
As an example, lets suppose we wanted to send a simple hello to our friend Joe who has an email address of email@example.com. We also want to send the same hello to our friends Betty and Sal having email addresses of firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, respectively. However, we do not want Joe or Betty to know that Sal has gotten a copy of the email as well (called a Blind Carbon Copy). The message header and message text of the composer window would look like
Hello there. Hope things are well for you and Betty and Sal. I have sent Betty a copy of this email.
All the best.
To send this email, we would then select File > Send Message Using or hit the 'Send' icon on the toolbar. This does not send out the email, but puts it into your Outbox folder. To send it out onto the Internet, from the main window of Outlook 2000 select Tools > Send and Receive or click the 'Send and Receive' icon on the toolbar.
There are other functions which can be done through the email composer such as sending files text and non-text files, creating an address book and more. For these features and others, please read through the help information that is found under the 'Help' pull-down menu.
