How to send your first email from your new Inbox account

Electronic mail evolved into a standard means of communication that most people are familiar with and is used for Internet shopping and transactions, for daily work communication as well as for sharing photos, music and documents. Generally, any file can be sent as an e-mail attachment depending on the email service’s attachment size limitations. Email is a powerful communications tool that can send messages to multiple people at once, allows access to your mailbox from anywhere and gives you the ability to communicate quickly. The only disadvantage of this kind of communication is that it is less personal than a face-to-face or telephone conversation. The article about setting up an email address describes how to set up an Inbox.com personal mailbox. The instructions below will show you  how to send your first email from your new account.


  1. Open your Internet browser, go to the Inbox home page.
  2. You can sign in to your account directly on the Inbox.com portal homepage or click on the “Email” icon at the top of the page. If your browser opens to display the Inbox.com search page, then click on the “Sign In” link at the top of the page.
  3. Type in your email address and password and then click on the “Sign In” button.
  4. You will be directed to the “Email” tab of your account. If not, click on the “Email” tab in the navigation bar and then click on the “Compose Email” button.
  5. Type in the receiver’s email address into the “To:” box.
  6. In the “Subject:” box, type in the title of the email, e.g., Holiday Greetings, Big Announcement!, How are you? etc.
  7. The large “Body” text box is where you type in the main text of the email.
  8. The “Additional Info” section gives you more options for your email. To attach a file to your email go to “Attachments:” where you can upload one or more files that are saved on your computer, such as photos or documents.
  9. Click on the “Browse…” button next to the “Attach local file:” box. In a newly opened window, locate the file on your PC and click the “Open” button.
  10. You can attach more files if you would like by repeating step 9.
  11. When you are finished, click on the “Send” button at the bottom of page, which will send the email to the email address you typed in.

Tips and Tricks:

  • You can attach files from your online storage by clicking on the “Browse My Storage…” link in the “Additional info” section.
  • You can change the priority of the email by clicking on the “Priority” dropdown menu which is located in the “Additional Info” section.
  • You can send a copy of the email to someone by entering the email address into the “Cc:” field, located under the receiver’s address (“To.”).


  • It is not recommended to send emails with large attachments as the receiver may not have enough space in his mailbox.
