    1. Manually type in a username or email address, separating multiple entries with commas.
    2. Use SimpleClick™ to enter individuals or groups without typing in addresses. To use SimpleClick™, click on the To button and your contact list will appear on the left-hand side of the window.
    3. You may choose from personal, shared, and enterprise contacts (See SimpleClick™ tabs). Simply click on the desired names to automatically insert them into the To field of your email.
  2. To send carbon copies of your outgoing email to others, enter additional email addresses in the “CC” field by using SimpleClick™ or by manually typing them in.
