Addressing messages using the Directory
To specify a recipient who is in the Directory, enter the recipient's full name or part of the name. For details, see the help for the standard message form.
To create a message from the Directory
If you have not yet created a new message, you can use the Directory or Who's Online list to create a preaddressed standard message. To do this, choose Create Mail To from the context menu.

Addressing messages to your contacts
You address messages to your contacts just as you specify any other recipient who is in the Directory.
If your contact has multiple email addresses (such as a business and a personal one), all addresses will be included in the list of matches when you type the contact name, or part of it. Simply choose the address to which you want to send your message.

Addressing messages to conferences
You can address a message to a conference just as you would to another user. To automatically address a message to a conference, open the conference, then create the message.

Addressing messages to Internet addresses
To specify a recipient when the message will go over the Internet, type the recipient's email address. FirstClass recognizes any address containing @ as an Internet address.
FirstClass does not check whether this type of address is valid.

Sending mail to local addresses (addresses on your own server) is more efficient than sending mail over the Internet. For this reason, if the recipient is on your server, FirstClass will try to substitute their local FirstClass address for the Internet address.

Addressing messages to gateway addresses
To specify a recipient who is connected to your server through a gateway, type the address in the format
recipient's name,gateway name
The recipient's name is the user name or address of the recipient as defined on the other system. The gateway name is the name used by the other system.
