Transcript of "Internet Tutorial 02"

  1. 1. Evaluating an E-Mail Program and a Web-Based E-Mail Service Basic Communication on the Internet: E-Mail Tutorial 2
  2. 2. Objectives <ul><li>Learn about e-mail and how it works. </li></ul><ul><li>Learn about the Thunderbird and Opera e-mail clients. </li></ul><ul><li>Explore Web-based e-mail services. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Objectives <ul><li>Configure and use Outlook Express to send, receive, and print e-mail messages. </li></ul><ul><li>Create and maintain an address book in Outlook Express. </li></ul><ul><li>Configure and use Hotmail to send, receive, and print e-mail messages. </li></ul><ul><li>Create and maintain an address book in Hotmail. </li></ul>
  4. 4. What is E-Mail and How Does It Work? <ul><li>A form of communication in which electronic messages are created and transferred between two or more computers connected to a network. </li></ul><ul><li>One of the most popular forms of business communication. </li></ul><ul><li>Fast and inexpensive. </li></ul><ul><li>It can be sent and received at anytime. </li></ul>
  5. 5. What is E-Mail and How Does It Work? <ul><li>Mail server: a hardware and software system that determines from the recipient’s address one of several electronic routes on which to send the message. </li></ul><ul><li>Protocols: rules that determine how the Internet handles message packets flowing on it. </li></ul><ul><li>SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol): decides which paths an e-mail message takes on the Internet. </li></ul><ul><li>POP (Post Office Protocol): handles incoming messages. </li></ul>
  6. 6. What is E-Mail and How Does It Work? <ul><li>IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol): protocol for retrieving mail messages from a server. </li></ul><ul><li>MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions): a protocol that specifies how to encode non-text data, such as graphics and sound, so it can travel over the Internet. </li></ul><ul><li>Mail client software or e-mail program: software that requests mail delivery from the mail server to your PC. </li></ul>
  7. 7. What is E-Mail and How Does It Work? <ul><li>Email Address: uniquely identifies an individual or organization that is connected to the Internet. </li></ul><ul><li>E-mail addresses usually are not case-sensitive. </li></ul><ul><li>Two parts of email address: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>User name – identifies person within an organization. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Host name – specifies the computer to which the email is to be delivered. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Separated by an “at” sign (@) </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. What is E-Mail and How Does It Work? <ul><li>Most people have more than one e-mail address. </li></ul><ul><li>Primary e-mail address for personal and/or business correspondence. </li></ul><ul><li>Secondary e-mail addressed for online subscriptions, online purchases, and mailing lists. </li></ul><ul><li>Being careful about distribution of primary e-mail address may lessen amount of spam and junk email that you receive. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Common Features of an E-Mail Message <ul><li>Message Header: contains all the information about the message. </li></ul><ul><li>Message Body: contains the actual message. </li></ul><ul><li>Signature: appears at the bottom of your e-mail messages and contains standard information about yourself that the recipient can use to contact you in a variety of ways. </li></ul>

  11. 11. Common Features of an E-Mail Message <ul><li>Type the recipient’s full e-mail address in the To line of an e-mail header. </li></ul><ul><li>Use the courtesy copy (Cc) and the blind courtesy copy (Bcc) lines to send mail to people who should be aware of the e-mail message, but are not the message’s main recipients. </li></ul><ul><li>No recipient can view the list of Bcc recipients. </li></ul><ul><li>In a group , a single e-mail address can represent several or many individual e-mail addresses. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Common Features of an E-Mail Message <ul><li>The From line of an e-mail message lists the sender’s name. </li></ul><ul><li>The Subject line should indicate the message’s content and importance. </li></ul><ul><li>An e-mail attachment provides a simple and convenient way of transmitting electronic documents to one or more people. </li></ul><ul><li>Attachments can contain viruses, malicious programs that can harm your computer and its files. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Common Features of E-Mail Programs <ul><li>Although e-mail messages are less formal than business letters, but you should still follow the rules of formal letter writing. </li></ul><ul><li>Signatures can contain </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Name </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Title </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Company name </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Contact information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Graphics </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Nicknames </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Quotations </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Internet Etiquette (Netiquette) <ul><li>Netiquette: a set of commonly accepted rules that represent proper behavior on the Internet. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Avoid writing messages in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE SHOUTING. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Keep your messages simple, short, and focused. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Include a descriptive Subject line and a signature. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Avoid sending unsolicited messages, especially those with attachments. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use a spell checker and read your message and correct any spelling or grammatical errors before sending it. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use common courtesy, politeness, and respect in all of your written correspondence </li></ul></ul>

They are especially useful for moving junk mail . </li></ul>
  18. 18. Common Features of E-Mail Programs <ul><li>When you forward a message to another recipient, a copy of the original message is sent to the new recipient you specify without the original sender’s knowledge. </li></ul><ul><li>When you reply to a message that you received, the e-mail program creates a new message and automatically addresses it to the original sender. </li></ul><ul><li>In most e-mail programs, deleting a message is a two-step process to prevent you from accidentally deleting important messages. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Maintaining an Address Book <ul><li>You use an address book to save e-mail addresses and to associate those addresses with nicknames . </li></ul><ul><li>Nicknames are special names that are easy to remember. You can use a nickname to represent a person or a group. </li></ul><ul><li>You can usually organize contact information about individuals and groups in an address book. </li></ul><ul><li>You can refer to entries in your address book at any point while you are composing, replying to or forwarding a message. </li></ul>
  20. 20. E-Mail Programs <ul><li>When you install a browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, you also install an e-mail program you can configure to send and receive your e-mail messages. </li></ul><ul><li>You should become familiar with the different e-mail programs available before you decide which one to use. </li></ul>
  21. 21.

  22. 22. Mozilla Thunderbird <ul><li>Has the ability to subscribe to and receive newsfeeds automatically using Really Simple Syndication (RSS) . </li></ul><ul><li>Really Simple Syndication (RSS): an XML file format that makes it possible to share updates such as headlines and other Web site content via a newsfeed. </li></ul><ul><li>Most RSS newsfeeds must be read through a program called an aggregator that lets you receive newsfeed content. </li></ul><ul><li>When you subscribe to a newsfeed, you can choose a frequency on which to download messages. </li></ul><ul><li>Can be used to manage your Usenet newsgroup subscriptions. </li></ul>
  23. 23. Thunderbird Inbox Window New Perspectives on The Internet, Sixth Edition—Comprehensive Tutorial 2
  24. 24. Opera M2Client <ul><li>Installed with the Opera Web browser. </li></ul><ul><li>Allows you to import information from Outlook Express, Netscape Mail, Eudora, and earlier versions of Opera. </li></ul><ul><li>Includes a spell checker and a Label button to assign messages to categories. </li></ul><ul><li>Messages are stored in a single database (instead of folders) so that messages are easy to sort, search, and retrieve. </li></ul><ul><li>Has the ability to subscribe to RSS newsfeeds automatically. </li></ul>
  25. 25. Opera Mail Panel New Perspectives on The Internet, Sixth Edition—Comprehensive Tutorial 2
  26. 26. Web-Based E-Mail Services <ul><li>Many Internet Web sites provide free e-mail addresses and accounts for registered users. They may be used with any Web browser with Internet access to send and receive e-mail messages. </li></ul><ul><li>They may be used as your primary e-mail address or to set up a separate, personal address when the use of personal e-mail is restricted at work or school. </li></ul><ul><li>Popular choices for free Web-based e-mail services are: Yahoo! Mail, ExciteMail, and Hotmail. </li></ul>
  27. 27. <ul><li>Companies can provide free e-mail because of advertising messages displayed on their websites. </li></ul><ul><li>You will see links to other services offered by Web-based e-mail services on their Web pages. </li></ul><ul><li>E-mail messages sent from Web-based mail accounts might also contain some sort of advertisement, such as a promotional message or a link to the Web-based mail service. </li></ul>Web-Based E-Mail Services
  28. 28. Gmail from Google <ul><li>Gmail promises two gigabytes of storage space for every user, causing other online Web-based e-mail services to increase their free storage space. </li></ul><ul><li>Paid for by adding advertisements to e-mail messages based on searches of those messages is causing concerns about the privacy of e-mail messages. </li></ul><ul><li>Because Google performs routine maintenance on its servers, such as backups and archives, your messages might be stored forever in these files, making your private messages part of a permanent archive. </li></ul>
  29. 29. Google Gmail Inbox Window New Perspectives on The Internet, Sixth Edition—Comprehensive Tutorial 2
  30. 30. Web Logs <ul><li>Web logs , or blogs , have been around for awhile, but were catapulted into mainstream media during the 2004 presidential campaigns. </li></ul><ul><li>Howard Dean, Senator John Kerry, and President George W. Bush used blogs to communicate with supporters and respond to stories in the media. </li></ul><ul><li>Blogs are not subject to the same ethical guidelines of professional reporters, so information contained in them should be considered personal opinion, not “hard news.” </li></ul>
  31. 31. “You’ve Got Spam!” <ul><li>Spam : unsolicited commercial e-mail ( UCE ) or bulk mail . </li></ul><ul><li>Includes unwanted solicitations, advertisements, or e-mail chain letters sent to an e-mail address. </li></ul><ul><li>Spam wastes people’s time, bandwidth, and storage space. </li></ul><ul><li>It is estimated that the amount of spam received by the average company increased from approximately 1% in 1995 to 80% in 2005. </li></ul>
  32. 32. “You’ve Got Spam!” <ul><li>Many grassroots and corporate organizations are fighting spam aggressively. </li></ul><ul><li>Most companies find it more effective and less costly to eliminate spam before it reaches users. </li></ul><ul><li>An increasing number of approaches have been devised or proposed to combat spam, such as the passing of laws and technical changes in the mail handling systems of the Internet. </li></ul>
  33. 33. Reducing Spam <ul><li>Reduce the likelihood that a spammer can automatically generate your e-mail address </li></ul><ul><li>Control the exposure of your e-mail address so software robots searching the Internet for e-mail addresses cannot easily obtain them. (They search for strings containing “@”.) </li></ul><ul><li>Use multiple e-mail addresses such as one for your Web site, another to register for access to Web sites, another for shopping accounts, etc. </li></ul>
  34. 34. CAN-SPAM Law <ul><li>Many U.S. jurisdictions have passed laws that provide penalties for sending spam. </li></ul><ul><li>The CAN-SPAM Law is the first U.S. federal government effort to legislate controls on spam. </li></ul><ul><li>Regulates all e-mail messages sent for the primary purpose of advertising or promoting a commercial product or service. </li></ul>
  35. 35. CAN-SPAM Law <ul><li>According to the CAN-SPAM law, unsolicited e-mail messages must: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>identify the sender </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>contain an accurate message subject and a notice that the message is an advertisement or solicitation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>make it possible for the recipient to “opt out” of future mailings within 10 days of receipt of the request </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>include the sender’s physical postal address </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>prohibit the sender from selling or transferring an e-mail address with an opt out request to any other entity </li></ul></ul>
  36. 36. CAN-SPAM Law <ul><li>Each violation is subject to a fine of up to $11,000. </li></ul><ul><li>Additional fines are assessed for those who violate one of these provisions and also harvest e-mail addresses from Web sites, send messages to randomly generated addresses, use automated tools to register for e-mail accounts that are subsequently used to send spam, and relay e-mail messages through a computer or network without the permission of the computer's or network’s owner. </li></ul><ul><li>Enforcement is a problem because spammers can move their operations from one server to another in minutes. </li></ul>
