Sending an Email Message is Easy!
The MailBug app makes it really easy to compose and send an email or text message. For many users, especially beginners, the hardest part of sending an email message is getting the email addressing correct. Some users will think first of the person to whom they wish to write, and they will intuitively start by going to their Contacts list. Others will prefer to go directly to the Compose screen and select the message recipients there. Either way, MailBug makes addressing email (or text) messages simpler, quicker, and with fewer chances of making an addressing mistake.
In the Contacts screen select the recipient by typing the first few letters of their name. As you type the letters of the name, the highlight will automatically move to the first name on the list that matches what you’ve typed so far (and assuming that person is on your Contacts list). When the correct name is highlighted, press Enter. This automatically takes you to the Compose screen with that name and address displayed on the email’s To: address line.
If you start in the Compose screen, you can add names and addresses by typing the first few letters of their name, until you see the dropdown list of matching names appear. Then just select the appropriate name and press Enter. So addressing your message is really easy, intuitive, and painless. And of course, you can always manually type any email address you choose.
After adding a subject line and typing the body of your message, you can send your message by simply typing Ctrl S (or clicking on the arrowhead icon in the upper right corner of the screen). You can also press the Ctrl key on the keyboard for more options.
If, while you are composing an email message, you wish to add more people to your email, MailBug has an “address selector” feature that aids you in finding an address from your Contacts list. This means that you don’t have to remember the correct address for your message’s recipients — MailBug does that for you.
You can choose to send your message to individual recipients as a SMS text message (instead of an email) by selecting that name and pressing the letter T on the keyboard. This tells MailBug to use the “email-to-text gateway” form of the address instead of their normal email address.
The figure of the Compose screen shows an example of the address selector popup window where you can quickly and easily add, remove, or modify your email message’s addresses.
