it to, what the subject line will be, and, of course, what you will

There are a few options you may want to consider:
If you check off "Backup sent message", it will put a copy of the message you send in the Sent folder. This way, you can keep a record of your sent messages.
By checking off "Confirm Reading", you will get a receipt of the e-mail message.
Also, changing the "Message Format" in HTML will load the HTML-editor.
Like in a wordprocessor you can include tables, colors, images and so
