Responding to Messages

  • Click on a message in your inbox to view it.  The newest messages appear on top. Under your message, there are options for a reply or forward.  Both options will open a text box for you to compose your reply or message if forwarding. The example below shows a reply and a forward.  In the message options in the top right corner of your message, you can also choose to reply, reply all, or forward your message.  After you have composed your response, there is an option to send and archive or send only.  Send and archive will send your response and remove the message from your email box but retain it in All Messages, while Send only sends the message and keeps it in your inbox.
