How does Email Work?

Email is a way of communicating with people all over the world through the internet. After an email is sent, your computer breaks it down into small packets which are put back together in the receiving end. You have to create an email account through yahoo, google, or excite, among others. It is similar to writing a letter. You insert an email address in the ‘to’ box, put your address in the ‘from’ box, type your message in the ‘body’ and click ‘send’. You are finished! See, that wasn’t too bad.
