Do you have 3,000 emails in your inbox? Do you get more spam than legitimate emails? Adults are invited to the Computer Training Lab to learn how to manage their email account, avoid spam, send and receive messages, and work with sending and receiving attachments like photos. Attendees must already have an active email account. Those who don't are asked to arrive 30 minutes before the class so that staff can help set one up. Experience using the mouse and keyboard and Internet navigation are also required for this class.
