How to send messages in Gmail.
Type your recipient's email address in the "To:" field.
Write your message! Just click in the large field below and type away.
Messages are automatically saved as you compose them.
Gmail automatically saves drafts every few minutes. If you'd like to save a draft manually, just click Save Now about the message you're composing, or press Ctrl+S when your cursor is in any of the text fields. (Cmd+S for Mac users).
When you're done composing, click the "Send" button.
The Send button is located just above the To: field
