In this activity, you are simply going to send an e-mail message to me. That's it--nothing to it, right? You can do this one of two ways.
1. You can use the link on this page to send mail to me or you can go to your own e-mail account and send a message to me from there. Either way, you will receive an answer, which you will turn in to your instructor as "homework" or proof that you have accomplished this activity. If you are going to e-mail me from your own account, it would be best to copy and paste my e-mail address for this activity:
rather than trying to type it in from memory or just copying it by looking at it. Sometimes one letter or punctuation mark can be quite elusive: you think you typed the address in perfectly, but the message comes back and says "user unknown." That gets frustrating for both of us; copy and paste is best.
2. The other way to e-mail me is to click on this mail link. A mail dialogue box will appear with the beginnings of a mail message addressed to me. You need to fill in the other lines. You can fill in the CC: to yourself if you wish.
The next step is very important.
Irrespective of which way you
e-mail me (#1 or #2 above), you must
put the following word in the Subject line:
Do not put anything else or you will not get a response. Then in the message area you can write whatever you wish. A brief message will do. This will go to a special account I have set up, and an automatic message will be generated. I thought about trying to answer all messages individually, but then I thought, "What if I am gone, or sick, or my computer is down?" Then you wouldn't have your homework done, and I would be just like the dog that ate your paper. To be on the safe side, automation is the way to go here.
