Email Basics Lessons

Replying to & Forwarding Emails the Right Way

 

17:07

In this lesson I give you some tips on how to work with emails which can be used in a number of ways to improve your communications with others

One of the biggest examples of how to use this is for cleaning up all of those tons of unnecessary email addresses and other junk that shows up at the top of forwarded messages, so they’re cleaner and easier to read before you send them along to others.

A big help a lot of people wish they knew how to do

Using ‘BCC’ For Greater Privacy & Security

13:26

There is an important feature of email programs which unfortunately few people know about, called “BCC”. BCC, short for “Blind Carbon Copy”, is a way you can easily hide the names and addresses of people you send emails to when you forward a message or otherwise send an email to multiple people at once.

This helps maintain people’s privacy, and actually helps prevent the spread of viruses and spam at the same time. This is something everyone should know how to do

Two easy methods to email a web page to someone

8:04

This lesson shows you two methods (one which works for most people, and another which can work for anybody) which allows you to share a website or web page with someone via email

Using TinyURL.com to solve a common problem

6:00

It’s not uncommon for people to try to send links using either of the above methods and run into a problem if the web site address is too long — it “breaks” in emails, or is too long to fit into a message when using systems like Twitter which only allow very short messages

TinyURL.com is a free website that shortens long website addresses to make them easier to share with others. This lesson will show you how to use the TinyURL service via their website

Using the free TinyURL Firefox add-on

7:24

If you find yourself using TinyURL a lot, as I do, you might want a more quick and efficient way of using the free service.

If you use Mozilla Firefox to browse the web, it has the ability to add features using “add-ons”

This lesson will show you how to install and use the TinyURL Creator add-on, which automates and simplifies using TinyURL

This will be of most use to people who find themselves using TinyURL a lot, and the steps in the previous lesson will work fine for people who only use it occasionally

It does require you to use Mozilla Firefox for your web browser and will not work with Safari. The method in the previous lesson, however, will work with any web browser

How to Files By Email a Better Way

10:25

There are a lot of drawbacks to sending large pictures or other kinds of files (or too many smaller ones) by email, especially if the person you’re sending it to has dialup.

I explain why in this video lesson, and show you how to use a free service called YouSendIt.com, which helps solve the problems with sending files by email
