Reading e-mail
The parts of an e-mail address
Here are some example e-mail addresses:
[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]
An e-mail address, just like a street address, has a few
different parts that always appear in the same order.
[email protected]
This is the online or e-mail
name of the person
The “at” symbol (@)
connects these two parts.
This part is called the
domain. It may be the
name of the e-mail
service that they use
or it may be the name
of the company they
work for.
Your Inbox is the starting point for
everything you do in Mail, from
reading and writing an e-mail to controlling unwanted e-mail, or spam.
E-mail messages are delivered to your Inbox. When you
have unread e-mail, the blue light on the front of your
Internet player will illuminate, and the status bar at
the bottom or your screen will show how many unread
messages you have.
To read your e-mail
1
Go to Mail by pressing the Mail key on the
keyboard or by choosing Mail on the home page.
2
Choose the e-mail message that you want to read.
3
To read the next e-mail in your Inbox, choose Next
at the top of the page. To read the previous e-mail,
choose Previous.
Your Inbox opens.
The e-mail will open in a new page. You don’t have
to read the entire message right away. It will stay in
your Inbox until you delete it or move it to a folder.
9
Writing e-mail
Writing an e-mail is as easy as writing
a letter. Your messages just get there
a lot faster.
You can write e-mail to anyone who has an e-mail address,
whether they’re across town or around the world.

If you want to send a copy of your e-mail to someone
else at the same time, you can type their address on
the Cc line (Cc stands for carbon copy).
Type the subject of your e-mail on the Subject line.
If you want to save a copy of the e-mail that
you’re sending, check Save a copy of this e-mail
to my Sent messages folder.
Type your message. When you’re finished, choose Send.
On MSN TV, you can save e-mail
messages you want to keep, and
you can create folders to help you
organize your saved e-mail.
For example, you might want to create a folder to store
e-mail from your family, another to store e-mail from your
friends, and another to store e-mail from companies.
To do this, first you create a folder, and then you move
e-mail to that folder. You can move e-mail as you read
it from the Read e-mail page or move e-mail directly
from the Inbox.

Opening and viewing e-mail attachments
Using the Address book
Your friends may send documents
and photos along with their e-mails.
These are known as attachments.
You don’t have to remember the
e-mail addresses of the people you
write to. You can just save their
addresses in your Address book.
When you get an e-mail with a document or photo
attached to it, you see a paper clip next to the
e-mail in your Inbox.
To open and view a document you receive in e-mail

you’re adding.
Choose Add.
Tip After you add someone to your Address book, you
can type their Quickname – rather than their full e-mail
address – in the To line of an e-mail you write.
13
Dealing with junk mail
You probably already get junk mail
letters delivered by the post office.
Now that you’re on the Internet,
you may also get junk e-mail, often
called spam.
The people who send these unwanted messages are
called spammers. Some unscrupulous companies may
share e-mail addresses with spammers, or a spammer
may send thousands of e-mails to e-mail addresses at
random, hoping that some of them will reach valid
accounts.
You can set up a junk mail filter to help reduce the
amount of junk mail you see in your Inbox. You can
also decide how quickly junk mail is deleted from the
Junk mail folder, which MSN TV automatically creates
when you set up an account.
There are other ways to handle junk mail. If everything
you get from a particular person is junk mail, you can
block all mail from their address. Of course, you can
always simply delete unwanted mail.

Browsing
the Web
and using
Search

Browsing the Web and using Search
Going to a Web site you know
Imagine a library bigger than any
building can hold, a world-wide
shopping mall open 24 hours a
day, a global newsroom, and an
international town square where
anyone can make their views known.
Combine these things and more
and you have the World Wide Web.
Many organizations now put their
Web address in their ads or on
business cards. If you know the
Web address of a site that you want
to visit, you can easily get to it.
You can browse and explore the Web on your own or
you can use Search to find what you want. It’s up to you.
The Web is made of millions of Web sites. Each site,
like a book, can have hundreds of Web pages.
What makes the Web so much fun is the way that many
of these pages are linked together. These links take you
to different pages. Most of the time, links appear as
underlined or differently colored text that you can choose.
Often, links appear as buttons on a Web page. You can
easily spend hours browsing linked pages. This is also
known as surfing the Web.
In this section, you’ll learn about browsing and searching
the Web. To get more information on browsing or
searching, choose Help on the home page.
There are three ways to go to a Web site you know
•
•
•
On the MSN TV home page, type the Web site
address in the text box near the bottom of the page.
In Search, type the Web site address into the
text box on the Search page.
When you’re anywhere on MSN TV, press the
Type www key on the keyboard, and then type
the Web site address in the text box that appears.
This is usually the handiest way.
For example, here’s a Web address. Press the Type www
key on your keyboard, type the address in the text box
that appears, and then choose Go.
http://www.ancestry.com
Tip When using Type www, you only have to type the
part of the address that comes after www. MSN TV will
take care of the rest.
18
19
Finding information with Search
Narrowing down a search
There are millions of Web pages. To
find exactly what you want, you have
to be specific. You do the same thing
when you call Directory Assistance
for a phone number.
If your search gets too many
results, use more keywords to
help narrow it down.
If you called Directory Assistance and asked for Joe’s phone
number, they’d ask you for more information in order to
narrow it down. You’d need Joe’s last name, and at least
the city where he lived. The more information you had,
the better they’d be able to help you. Searching the Web
works much the same way.
There are four ways to search on MSN TV
•
•
•
•
On the MSN TV home page, type the words
or phrase you want to search for in the text box
near the bottom of the page.
In Search, type the words or phrase you want to
search for in the text box there.
On the search results page, type the words or
phrase you want to search for in the text box
at the bottom of the page.
When you’re anywhere on MSN TV, press the
Search key on the keyboard. This will take you
to the Search page.
Try this search yourself: look for information about
the first crew to land a spacecraft on the moon. In this
exercise, you’ll learn how to narrow down a search.
1
Type moon in the Search box on the home page,
and then choose Go.
2
To narrow down your search, add some more
information.
3
4
20
You’ll get lots of listings on the results page. Since moon
is a fairly common word, it’s found on thousands of
Web pages. You’ll see descriptions of some of these
pages on the results page.
Since you know you want to find information on the
crew that went to the moon, type crew and moon
in the text box. You can type this in the box at the
bottom of the results page. You’ll still get many listings
on the results page.
Make your search even more specific. Type NASA
and crew and moon in the text box.
This time, you get more relevant results.
If you scroll down the results page, you should be
able to find information about the Apollo team. To
go to a particular Web page, choose it from the list.
21
Searching for a phrase or name
Often, you may want to look up
a phrase or a complete name. To
make sure Search looks for the
exact phrase or the exact name,
put quotes around it.
“New York State”
”stepping stones”
“interest rates”
Here are some other searches you might want to try
•
•
•
Look up the name of your high school to see if you
can find information on your former schoolmates or
to find out how the school has changed since you
were a student there. (You may need to include both
the name of the school and the city.)
Favorites
Try to find a few different recipes for your favorite
dish or dessert.
Search for the town or city you currently live in to see
if you can find information on its history.
When you put a phrase or a complete name in quotes,
you tell Search to look only for results that have those
exact words in that order, and not results that are close to
it, or that have only a few of the same words, or have the
words in a different order.
22
23
Favorites
When you find a Web page you like
and know you’ll want to return to, you
can save it as a favorite so you can
get back to it quickly, without having
to search or browse for it again.
For example, you might want to save as favorites the
Web sites for your local library, a nearby national park,
or even a resort you dream of visiting.
24
Saving favorite Web sites
You can then access your favorite sites by choosing
Favorites from the bottom of the home page, or by using
the Favorites keys on your keyboard.
You can also set up shortcuts to three of your favorite
Web sites so you can return to them simply by pressing
a key on your keyboard.
In this section, you’ll learn how to save and
organize favorites.
To learn more about saving Web pages as favorites, or
other ways you can organize your favorites, choose Help
from any page in Favorites.
Saving a Web page as a
favorite is easy.
You’ll probably find that you visit some sites regularly.
You may want to keep current on news from your home
town, or you might want to check the weather on the
golf course every morning.
To save a Web page as a favorite

on the keyboard.
25
Organizing your favorites
Creating shortcuts to your favorites
After you’ve used the Web for awhile,
you may find that you have several
favorites. You can create folders to
organize your favorites.
If you create a shortcut to a Web
page, you can get there by pressing
just one key on your keyboard.
Setting up a favorites shortcut is
similar to assigning a favorite radio
station to one of the buttons on
your car radio.
You can create folders with any theme or subject you
choose. For example, you can create a folder devoted
to your favorite online stores so you can quickly do
comparison shopping.
To create a favorites folder

Messenger
Passing a note to a friend is perfectly
OK on MSN TV. With MSN Messenger,
you can send real-time, instant
messages to your online contacts.
Exchanging instant messages
They can send instant messages back to you, too. Instant
messaging is quicker than an e-mail — you can see your
contact’s response on your screen as soon as they type it —
and it’s more personal than a conversation in a chat room
full of people.
This section shows you how to make someone a Messenger
contact, reply to someone who wants to make you a
contact, and exchange instant messages.
If you want more information, choose Help from anywhere
in Messenger.
Before you begin exchanging instant
messages with someone, you need
to make that person a contact.
You can add as a contact anyone who uses MSN Messenger
and who has an e-mail address that ends in hotmail.com,
msn.com, webtv.net, or passport.com, or anyone who has
a .NET Passport.

Blocking people in Messenger
If someone you don’t know or don’t
want to communicate with tries to
contact you with Messenger, there
are a few things you can do.
You can block the person during a conversation, add the
person to your Block list in Messenger settings, or block
the person who has sent you a contact request.

Chat
Few things in life are as nice as
chatting with friends. On MSN TV,
you can have lively online discussions
with groups of people in chat rooms.
Choosing a chat room
Things move fast in chat rooms, so have your keyboard
ready! With MSN TV, you can choose from a wide
variety of chat rooms, and you’re almost certain to find
one you enjoy.
In this section, we’ll discuss choosing a chat room, creating
your chat nickname, and what it’s like in a chat room.
Choose Help from anywhere in Chat for more information.
With so much going on these days,
there’s lots to chat about.
You can chat about important things or you can chat
about fun things. It’s all up to you. You just have to
choose a chat room. To make it easier, chat rooms are
organized into categories.

at the same time. Usually, conversations move as fast as
people can type.
Just like at a real party, you may want to whisper something
to somebody without everybody hearing you. MSN TV
allows you to send a personal message that won’t appear
to anyone else in the chat room.
Unfortunately, sometimes there are people you just don’t
want to chat with. If you choose Ignore, you won’t see
the messages they send to the chat room.

Making Web pages easier to read
Are you concerned about a child’s
use of the Internet? You can limit
their access by setting user restrictions on their MSN TV account.
You can easily change the size of
the text you see on Web pages. You
might want to make the text size
larger for easier reading or smaller
so that you can see more text on
your screen at one time. You can
also make Web pages easier to read
by using the Resize Page key on
your keyboard.
When you create an account for a child under 13, the
account automatically has these settings:

MSN TV centers
Centers are gateways to online
news, games, stores, and more. You
don’t have to look all over the
Internet to find the latest news, fun
things to do, and trustworthy
online stores. MSN TV has already
gathered the information for you.
Customizing News, Money, and Weather
For example, Entertainment has news, articles, and gossip
on show business. Sports lets you know the score about
your favorite athletes, competitions, and teams. Games
lets you play all sorts of online games. Shop allows you to
go to the mall without ever leaving home.
You can customize News, Money, and Weather to get the
information you want. This section shows you how.
For more on using centers, choose Help from your home
page or from any centers page.
News
News has a wide variety of news stories, from the top
headlines to health news to opinions. It’s a great place to

Music and video
There’s much more than just text
and pictures on the Internet. Music,
radio, and video clips and broadcasts make the Web come alive
with an amazing variety of content.
With MSN TV you can enjoy Windows Media® content on
your TV and home entertainment center. This section
shows you how to find audio and video
content on the Web and how to use the Media Player.
Listening to music and radio
Many Web sites let you listen to music clips and radio
broadcasts. There’s lots more than the latest pop and
hip-hop hits. You can find Web sites that feature all kinds
of music, including country, jazz, classical, blues, Latin,
ballads, rock, religious, and swing.
Besides music clips, there are radio stations that broadcast
on the Internet. Since these radio stations aren’t limited
by antenna reception, you can listen to stations based
all over the world.
Online broadcasts of audio or video programming are
sometimes called Webcasts.
Watching videos
Finding Windows Media-compatible
audio and video content online
There are lots of ways to get
Windows Media-compatible audio
and video content. For example,
friends can send you their music
and video attachments with
their e-mail.
Here are some other ways to find
things to watch and listen online.
To find audio and video content
•
Press the Music or the Videos key on your keyboard.
•
Choose Entertainment on your MSN TV home page.
•
Try going to the Web site of a favorite radio station,
radio network, news program, movie theater, or
movie studio.
•
•
Press the Search key on your keyboard. In the text
box, type music or video or Webcast and the specific
kind of content you’re looking for. Use lots of keywords
to narrow down your search.
QuickTime and Real Audio and Video formats are not
supported.
Lots of Web sites have video clips, too. There’s something
for almost every interest. You can find news broadcasts
from other countries. You can see movie trailers of
upcoming box office hits and view video clips of current
events. You can even see history and art video clips at
some museum sites.
52
53
Using the Media Player controls
In a movie theater, a projectionist
runs the projector so that you
can relax and watch the movie. On
MSN TV, the Media Player is your projectionist. It’s always ready to show
you video clips, play music, or let
you enjoy other programming online.
When you choose a music, video, or radio link on a Web
page, the Media Player opens, and then the controls
appear. The controls in the Media Player work something
like the controls on a VCR or a CD player. You can choose
Play, Pause, or Stop.
When you choose a windows Media-compatible music,
video, or radio link on a Web page, the Media Player
opens automatically. If it doesn’t, choose Play.
To learn more about using Media Player, choose Help
from the home page.
54
Here are some tips on using the Media Player
•
•
•
•
•
Look for the Windows Media Player version of the
media you want to watch or listen to. QuickTime and
Real Audio and Video formats are not supported.
Here’s what the Media Player looks like.
You don’t need to download any additional programs
to watch video or listen to music.
C
If you are connecting to MSN TV over a phone line,
look for media files that play at 28k, low speed, or
Narrowband speed. Choosing a higher speed may
cause files to play slowly or incompletely.
Media files play differently depending on how you’re
connecting to MSN TV, how large the file is, and how
much traffic there is on the Web site that provides
the file.
If a file is long, it may take a few seconds for
Media Player to load the file from the Web site.
While Media Player is preparing a file, the controls
may show Pause instead of Play. The file will automatically start after it has loaded completely.

Improve your safety and security online
How MSN TV helps keep you safe
In a car, you buckle your seat belt
for safety. You lock your doors for
security. When you go online, there
are also simple things that you
can do to help keep yourself, your
personal information, and your
family safe and secure.
How MSN TV helps keep
your information safe
First and foremost, be careful about giving out personal
information to people or Web sites that you don’t know.
Sometimes, people may ask you for personal information
in an e-mail, a chat, or an instant message. They may
even pretend to be officials of a business. Use caution
and common sense.
In this section, we’ll discuss
•
How MSN TV helps keep you safe
•
What you can do to help make the Internet
a safe place for children in your household
•
Steps you can take to help ensure your security
in Mail and Messenger
When you register for the MSN TV service, you give us your
name, address, phone number, and billing information.
We use this information to create your MSN TV account,
including your .NET Passport. In addition, we use your
ZIP code to provide local information on the home page
and in the News and Weather centers. You can choose a
different city any time by choosing News or Weather on
the home page.
How MSN TV keeps you
safe from viruses
Since your Internet player doesn’t have a hard drive, it’s
essentially immune from viruses, or malicious computer
programs people sometimes send through e-mail. In
addition, the e-mail program we use has built-in virus
protection. You don’t need to worry about your Internet
player catching a virus.
We do not rent, sell, or give your information to any
company outside of Microsoft without your permission.
We use state-of-the-art online encryption to help ensure
that the information you give us during registration
remains safe and secure.
The MSN TV Privacy Statement provides more detail on
how we use your information and the steps we take to
help ensure your online security. To read the MSN TV
Privacy Statement at any time, choose Account from
the home page, and then choose Review agreements
and policies.

Safeguarding your information on Web sites
Helping avoid junk mail
Many Web sites give you the
chance to sign up for a newsletter,
make a purchase, or get information
that’s customized to your interests.
Before you give information to or
fill out a form on a Web site, you
should always check to see if the site
is secure. A secure site electronically
encrypts the information that you
send, so that no one can “eavesdrop”
on it.
Junk e-mail, or spam, can be a big
frustration, so you probably want to
limit it as much as possible. There
are several things you can do to
help avoid spam.
Here’s how to determine if a site is secure
•
•
Look for a padlock at the bottom of the
screen when you’re on the Web site.
Check to see that the Web address for the page
begins with https (the s after the p stands for secure).
To check the Web address, press Menu on your
keyboard or remote.
Make sure that you see both of these — a padlock and a
Web address for the page that begins with https — before
you provide sensitive personal information to a Web site.
Be careful who you give your e-mail address to. Some
companies may sell your e-mail address, which can
increase the amount of unwanted e-mail you receive.
Be sure you share your address only with people and
companies you trust.
Don’t reply to unwanted e-mail even if you see a link
that says “unsubscribe.” That just lets a spammer know
that the message has reached a valid address. If you see
e-mail in your Inbox that appears to be spam, the best
thing to do is delete it right away.
You can set up a junk mail filter to help reduce the
amount of junk mail you see in your Inbox. In addition,
you can decide how quickly junk mail is deleted from
the Junk mail folder.
You can block the sender of any unwanted e-mail you
receive to prevent that person or company from sending
you e-mail in the future.
For more information, see Dealing with junk mail
on page 14.

Protecting yourself in Messenger
Helping keep kids safe online
Messenger allows you to communicate with people around the world.
Use common sense precautions with
Messenger: don’t accept contact
requests from people you don’t
know, and don’t give out personal
information, such as a credit card
number, during a conversation.
You can limit a child’s access to the
Internet by setting user restrictions
on their MSN TV account.
If you feel uncomfortable with someone who is trying to
contact you or who has contacted you, there are a few
things you can do: block the person directly from the
conversations panel, add the person to your Block list in
Messenger Settings, or block the person from making
you a contact. People you have blocked in Messenger
can’t see when you’re online and can’t send you instant
messages.
For information on blocking someone during a conversation or adding someone to your Block list, see page 34.
72
To block someone who has sent you
a contact request in Messenger
1
On the contact request page for this person,
choose No, block this person, and then choose
No, don’t add this person.
You will not appear on the person’s contact list,
so they will not be able to see when you are online
and they cannot send you instant messages.
The person will not appear on your contact list,
so you will not be able to see when they are online
