Helpful Hints

  • If you are ever unsure if an email was successfully sent, tap on the mail folder titled “Sent”. This will show every email that was sent from this account.
  • If there are multiple recipients on an email, you can choose to reply to everyone by tapping “Reply All”.
  • Do not worry if you delete an email by accident. Even deleted emails get saved to a folder just in case!
