There is a second small toolbar below the message:

2nd message toolbar

Normally OpenWebMail will change the Character Set of the view message screen to the appropriate character set for that message, thus allowing you to view messages in foreign languages correctly. You may choose a different character set manually in the drop menu.

The drop menu in which the text  Select Stationery for Reply  is in, allows you to select what stationery you would like to use for a reply.  Open the menu to display a list of stationery you have made.  Once you have selected one, you will be able to reply to the message with the stationery you selected.  If you do not have any stationery set up, click the stationery button ( ) after which you will be able to edit and/or create new stationery.  For a definition of stationery see The Settings Toolbar.

In the last drop menu you can Move or Copy a messages to another folder, even to Trash. See Moving & Copying Messages for more information.

The Left (left arrow) and Right (right arrow)) arrows accompanying the "1/22" are for browsing between multiple messages in the mailbox (the left arrow navigates to the previous message, the right arrow navigates to the next message). The numbers in between the arrows tells you what message you are viewing (1 specifies the 1st message in the folder) and the total messages (22) in the folder.

* If you are viewing a message in the Draft folder (see Managing Your Folders ), this button will Edit the message, rather than start a new one.
