E07: Using tab key in email

QUESTION: Why doesn’t my Tab key work while I’m writing an e-mail?

ANSWER: While on the Internet the Tab key function changes. It is used to move from one text box to another rather than indenting. If you hit the Tab key by accident and you can’t find your cursor, move the mouse arrow to the end of your e-mail text and click to activate that area.
