How does Sending an E-mail work?


The sender of the e-mail uses an email software program to compose the e-mail message, which will contain the e-mail address of the recipient.

The program then passes the e-mail to an 'agent' - which passes it on to a transport service for delivery to the recipient's mailbox. The recipient will use their own email software program to open and read the e-mail.
