Tech Savvy Seniors – Introduction to Email: Part 3

Course Overview

Continue your journey into the world of email with our Introduction to Email: Part 3!

Now that you have an email account and an understanding of how to send, reply to and forward email, it’s time to start organising your email. Because it’s free, a lot of email is sent, and you’ll likely find your Inbox getting quite full soon enough. You’ll also receive email from unwanted sources that you’ll have to learn to deal with; this is called spam, the junkmail of the internet. Before all that, however, we’ll talk a little about attachments and how to use them.

If you have a working knowledge of email, this is a good first session for exploring its more advanced features. If you have attended the Introduction to Email Part 1 and 2 workshops, this session completes the course and equips you to use all email’s most important features.

Macquarie Community College operates from a range of venues across Northern and Western Sydney. We have campuses in Blacktown, Carlingford, Chatswood, Epping, Mt Druitt, Richmond, and Ryde. Enrol now!
