On the main SquirrelMail screen, you will see the contents of your e-mail "INBOX." The most recent messages are located at the top of the list. Unread messages are shown in a bold font. The list displays the sender, date, and subject of each message.
You can send and receive files attached to e-mail messages in SquirrelMail. Using an attachment, you could send a spreadsheet to your accountant or receive pictures from colleagues across the country. Follow the instructions below to either send or receive an attachment.
If you do not delete all incoming messages immediately after reading them, or if you want to save certain messages for retrieval, you should use mail folders. The default mail folders are "INBOX," "Sent," and "Trash," but you can add your own folders and use them for any purpose you like.
SquirrelMail is a fast and powerful Web-based e-mail program. With SquirrelMail, you can read and send e-mail and attachments from within a Web browser, such as Firefox or Internet Explorer. This manual contains an introduction to SquirrelMail.
