4)     When you are done filling in the TO: line and the SUBJECT: line click email a word doc 3 to send your email.
Note that your word document will be turned into an email automatically.  The recipients will not need to open it as an attachment or anything.  The size of the file will also be smaller which will help those who have full mailboxes.

PRACTICE ACTIVITY:   Try typing your next email in Microsoft Word and then sending it using the directions above.
