Simply select a user to send the message by using the To button. Enter a subject, and then the body of the message. When completed, click the Send button on the toolbar and the message will be sent to the appropriate user(s).
While You Were Out is an external message, (received a phone call, or someone dropped by). It allows the sender to take the contact information and send the person a note (much like the old pink message slips).
The message screen to the right will open when you click on messages from the Toolbar on the folder screen. Notes within the message screen cannot be deleted; the person responding is listed on the screen. If message is closed, user may click on the messages button at the top and bring back in.
Fill out the appropriate fields in the given form. When the message is complete, click the Send button on the toolbar to send it to the selected users.
