17 After you click on a folder, you will be taken (in the right frame) to the
18 message index. This lists messages in the selected folder. Below the
19 menu choice is a line which informs you which mails you are viewing
20 numerically and how many total you have.
21 </p><p>
22 For example: Viewing messages <B>20</B> to <B>30</B> (45 total).
23 </p><p>
24 Notice that the total message count might be different from the unread
25 mail count which is to the right of the main mail folder.
26 </p><p>
27 A bar containing three buttons is next. On the left side is a drop down
28 list box. This box lists your currently subscribed folders. Any selected
29 message will be moved to the selected folder when the move button is pushed.
30 Multiple messages may be moved at once. On the right side of this bar is
31 a button used to delete selected messages. Just select the junk mail and
32 press the button.
33 </p><p>
6205dc7d 34 A bar containing three fields (From, Date, and Subject) is next. These Headings
384c5b78 35 separate the message table into logical parts. From tells you who sent
6205dc7d 36 you the message, or at least what email address it came from. Date
384c5b78 37 shows the day which the email was sent. Subject displays what the sender
38 entered as the subject. <b>Note:</b> Between the Date and Subject
39 columns is a small column that is unlabeled. There could be a "+", "!"
40 or an "A" in there. If you see the "+", that means that the message has
6205dc7d 41 attachments; if you see the "A", that means that you have answered the
384c5b78 42 message, and if you see the "!", then the message was marked as urgent!
43 </p><p>
44 What remains is the actual message table. You will notice that unread
45 messages are <B>bold</B> while viewed messages are in normal text.
46 Four fields form this table. On the far left is a select box. When
6205dc7d 47 selected, the message on the same line is subject to the actions previously
384c5b78 48 discussed, (moving and deletion). Under the From header is listed whom
49 the message is from. Surprising, we know. But hey, you don't have to read
6205dc7d 50 this. The date is listed next, and finally the subject.
