This post is also available in: 日本語 Русский

Sending a new email

To send a new email in webmail:

  1. Click on Compose in the top left corner;
  2. Add the recipient(s), subject, content and, if you wish, attachments;
  3. Click Send.

If you’re not ready to send the email immediately, click Save on the menu above the email composer. Then open the email later from the Drafts folder to continue writing. You can also set the frequency of autosaving drafts in Settings > Preferences > Composing messages > Main options > Automatically save draft.


Replying to an email

To reply to an email:

  1. Open the email you want to reply to;
  2. On the menu above the email, click either:
    1. Reply, if you only want to send an email to the person who sent the email, or
    2. Reply all, if you want to send an email to the sender and everyone else who received the same email.

Forwarding an email

To forward and email:

  1. Open the email you want to reply to;
  2. On the menu above the email, click Forward.

From the small arrow next to the button you can select whether to forward the email inline or as an attachment.


Adding recipients

You can add recipients to your email by typing them to the To field. As you type you’ll see suggestions from saved contacts.

Alternatively, you can open the Address Book from the right side of the recipients field, select the contact(s) and click on Insert.

From the + button next to the Address Book button, you can also add CC, BCC, Reply-to and Followup-to recipients.

Adding images

To add an inline image:

  • Make sure you’re using the HTML editor;

To always compose emails with the HTML editor, go to Settings > Preferences > Composing messages and select in which cases you want to compose HTML messages.

  3. Make the changes;
