Dear Amy: How do I use e-mail? — Robert, Santa Fe, N.M.
Dear Robert: Using e-mail is simple and fun. I use e-mail all the time to communicate with my friends, family and teachers. It is a great way to keep in touch with people all over the globe, and best of all, it is free. You can visit this site to learn how to set up your own account, www.wowusa.com/Internet101/email.htm.

Dear Amy: What is a good password? — Nicole, Worthington, Ky.
Dear Nicole: You need a password for just about everything: ATM machines, e-mail accounts and log-ins. Some services require that the passwords include numerals, symbols and capitalization. This makes a password more unique and more difficult for someone to discover it. Some people use the same password for all of these things so they can easily remember. Others feel that is unsafe.
