WHAT E-MAIL PROGRAM SHOULD YOU USE?

E-mail programs are usually provided by your ISP (Internet Service Provider). There are other free e-mail programs available from browsers as well such as Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Outlook Express, or Netscape Communicator. There is also Eudora Light that you can download for free and use with your ISP.

Some ISP's like AOL will not let you use any other e-mail program but theirs. However the features that AOL has are still very good for the novice.

After today's lesson, find out if the features we will be discussing in today's lesson are available in your e-mail program. If there is something you learn that you feel is important enough to have in your e-mail program, and do not, then maybe you ought to shop around for one that will suit your needs.

As you use e-mail on a regular basis, you will know which e-mail program features you really use a lot, and then it is just a matter of getting the most for your money.

Just be aware that Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Outlook Express are often under attack from hackers and e-mail viruses, so if you do decide to use one of those, you need to keep your antivirus programs up to date on a weekly basis and should have a firewall in place. We will be discussing more about antivirus programs and firewalls during the fourth week of these lessons.
