    • 1. Email Basics • What is an email address • How to create and access email • Parts of an Email: address like, subject line, body, • What an inbox, outbox, sent box is. • Attach a document and open an attachment • Create an address book and add names • Ways to organize your emails. • Tips for writing effective emails. • Advanced parts of an email – CC, BCC, signature
    • 2. What is Email? • Compare email to regular mail: what are the basic similarities? • Means of exchanging message, sharing information, advertising, and more • They have the same parts: sender, recipient, message body, etc. • Both have Junk Mail :( • Compare email to regular mail: How are they different? • Email is (almost) instantaneous • Email is free (you don’t need a stamp to send an email)
    • 3. How do most people get their email addresses • Your workplace gives you an email address • • • Your internet service provider gives you one • • • • Using free services • • • •
    • 4. Separate Work Email and Personal Email Do not give your work email address to your friends. Do not give your personal address to work people. Keep them very separate and distinct. • Workplaces often monitor you accounts. • Receiving personal email on the job may distract your from doing your job. • If you change jobs, you’ll be without a way for people to contact you.
    • 5. How to create an email account There are lots of free email providers. We’re going to create an email using gmail, Google’s free email service
    • 6. Step 1: Type in the address bar of your browser. Once you’re there, click “Create an Account”
    • 7. Step 2: Choose the Right Username. • Don't be afraid to use your real name. If you're using email to get a job, calling yourself "DarthVader918345" isn't the smartest decision. Use your real name or some obvious variation. Those you're communicating with will appreciate it. • Don’t make it too long or complicated. You’ll likely be asking people to remember your email. Long or complicated Usenames invite misspelling. • Don't use curse words or obscenity in your username. • You can use your name to tell us what you do. If you're a plumber, say so. If you're an attorney, tell us. • Distinguish yourself. Tom75 and Tom85 might as well be the same person to me. • Don't be too generic or "spam"-ish. A generic business name, like "" looks like spam. Don't get caught in other people's spam just because of your username. • Consider the impact your username could have on others. You'll be giving this address to friends, family, potential employers, doctors, etc. You need to decide what kind of impact you want it to have and go from there.
    • 8. Step 3: Choose a Password • Tips for creating a secure password: • Include punctuation marks and/or numbers. • Mix capital and lowercase letters. • Include similar looking substitutions, such as the number zero for the letter 'O' or '$' for the letter 'S' • Create a unique acronym. • Include phonetic replacements, such as 'Luv 2 Laf' for 'Love to Laugh'. • Things to avoid: • Don't use a password that contains personal information (name, birth date, etc.) • Don't use words or acronyms that can be found in a dictionary • Don't use keyboard patterns (asdf) or sequential numbers (1234). • Don't make your password all numbers, uppercase letters or lowercase letters. • Don't use repeating characters (aa11).
    • 9. Step 4: Choose a Security Question Security questions are used in case you forget your password. Google will ask you to answer the security question correctly before allowing you to access your email. • Choose a question only you know the answer to - make sure the question isn't associated with your password. • Pick a question that can't be answered through research (for example, avoid your mother's maiden name, your birth date, your first or last name, your social security number, your phone number, your pet's name, etc.). • Make sure your answer is memorable, but not easy to guess. Use an answer that is a complete sentence for even more security.
    • 10. Step 5: Word Verification Many websites today will ask you to type in a set of squished letters or words before completing a form. This verification makes sure a real human is filling out the form and not a computer virus.
    • 11. Step 6: Terms of Service In order to receive a free email from Google, you must agree to their terms of service. This includes how ads are displayed on your page, the privacy policy and the program.
