Mail Message Headers

Each message header has six fields or columns of information, as follows:

Message Header Status Messages

Status messages are displayed at the right side of the footer. These messages tell you how many messages are in your mail file, how many new messages you have, and how many you have currently deleted. In Figure 4-2, the status message tells you there are 4 items, 4 new messages, and 0 deleted messages.

Selecting Message Headers

You can select each message header by moving the pointer onto the line and clicking SELECT. A selected header has a box around it. To select additional messages, move the pointer into the line and click ADJUST. If a message is already selected, clicking ADJUST deselects it.

You can select all the messages sent by or to a particular person or alias, and/or about a particular subject by using the Mail Tool Find feature.
