Most email programs have options that allow you to undelete email messages that you have just deleted; see the documentation for your email program for instructions. If your email program automatically deletes your deleted messages -- often called "emptying the trash -- when you log out, this option is only available during the session that you deleted the message.

Aggregate operations give you the ability to process a group of messages at once. Acting on multiple messages requires two steps:

As the text of these messages say, they aren't really email messages. They are created whenever you read your email with a program that uses the IMAP email protocol to handle your Inbox and other email folders. IMAP creates these messages, which it uses for internal record keeping.

You shouldn't see these messages when you read your email with an email program that is set up to use IMAP. That includes WebMail and pine, which use only IMAP. You can also set up Eudora, Netscape, and Outlook to use IMAP rather than POP.

Use Email Filters to create custom filters for all email accounts.

Email filters are sets of rules that determine what happens to incoming messages. Using these filters you can automatically take some action on incoming mail, whether it is sorting mail from Harry into the 'harry' folder, or automatically replying to mail while you're on vacation. You will probably want to use email filtering if you receive a lot of messages.

There are four different types of email filters:

Argo has been decommissioned.

Argo should not be used to send or receive email. Please do not install your own copy of a mail user agent (such as pine or elm). Doing so will result in loss of your account. Please choose from existing Email and Calendaring options instead.

Alias owners can update the forwarding of an email alias at any time (authentication required).

A rule is an action that Microsoft Outlook performs automatically upon incoming or outgoing messages, based on conditions that you have specified. You can create a rule from a template, from a message, or using your own conditions. You can choose many conditions and actions by using the Rules Wizard. Rules fall into one of two categories — organization and notification. Rules don’t operate on messages that have been read, only on those that are unread.

What are email headers?

Email headers are the lines at the top of an email message that are used by servers on the Internet as they deliver the message. Your email program normally shows you only the standard To:, From:, Subject:, and Date: headers, but there are more. For instance, if you receive a piece of spam, you can expand the mail headers to more closely examine the Received: header, which tells you the route the message took when it was sent to you.
