The email course opened my eyes to more knowledge.
I have learnt so much about email from Rick : composing, sending, labeling, filtering and attachment. He went further in showing us how to sign our names and even our title at the end so that the reader knows who it is from and makes it official.
Today, we refreshed our memory on what we did last week and used our ‘keepass’ programme. We setup and was given information about Thunderbird that it is a free package allowing it to be an Outlook client. He also showed us and tell us about being an Administrator for the email domain and what information we can obtain from it.
Today I investigated the usefulness of adding multiple email addresses to an IMAP client email (Thunderbird) – so as to collate all incoming mail in one inbox, that can vied without needing to use an internet browser.
In addition to this I was given some insight into what is available to an administrator of a commercial email system; who and when someone logged-in, for instance.
This entire course was a welcome refresher to what I was taught on a similar course some little time ago.
Nowhere else, I’m sure, could I have learned and practiced so much of what is available and useful in an average email account; the file & folder filters will be especially important in my day to day usage.
I found out how to use a different email client & add another email account to an existing email client account. I also revised my use of KeePass & sent my course certificate to my home email address. I have enjoyed the course & will put what I learned into practice.
Today was a refresher for me. A re-run of Email filters, labels and archiving. All vital aspects of Email management.
The highlight was an introduction to password security, especially securing intricate/elaborate/long password creation and storing – using the KeePass software. A PC or portable Flash-Drive secure storage facility.
I revised sending attachments & then how to label filter & archive emails. Need to look how to do this on my email at home as I can see this will be very useful in separating out personal & business emails. I also learnt how to use KeePass to create & store stronger passwords than I use at present. Also something I will put into practice at home.
