The status symbol has three states: -

Red: no activity

Flashing green: receiving/sending

Amber: waiting for data

Whilst the action buttons are quite self explanitary, here is a brief description of their actions. All these buttons only requre a single click: -

  1. Check for new email - this button will contact your email provider and look retrive a list of all email on the server
  2. Download from server - this button will download all selected(highlighted) email to memory. This can be a useful feature if you do not want to stay on-line to read your email. Please note, TapirMail does not delete the email from the server at this point, nor does it store the mail in a file for later retrieveal. When you quit TapirMail and restart, you will need to download the email from the server again to view it
