Opening your email is a rather simple process but first you have to log in to your email account.

We will use gmail as an example as this is a popular option for many people.

  • Go to in your web browser
  • Sign in with your email address and password
  • You should be taken directly to your inbox
  • Click on any subject header and the email will automatically open.
  • At the top right-hand side of the page, you will see how many emails you have, and there are two arrow keys. To go to the next message, just click on the right arrow key.
  • You can go back to your inbox at any time by clicking on 'inbox' on the left-hand side.
  • If an email has an attachment, it will have a paperclip icon next to the subject header. The attachment will be at the bottom of the email and by clicking on it you will be able to open or save this attachment.
  • Do not open attachments from people you don't know. Sometimes people transmit viruses or spyware this way.

Most email accounts should work the same way but if in doubt, let me know, I am happy to help.
