    Hi Prasad6235!
    Welcome to the forums!

    Putty only displays command prompt of a remote Linux computer in Windows.
    The commands that you type in are simply Linux commands. They are not putty commands. Here are few examples:

    ls - to list files in a directory:
    Code:
    ls
    handbook-draft.pdf  iso
    ls -lh
    total 3.4M
    -rw-r--r-- 1 pavlo pavlo 3.4M 2007-05-15 05:53 handbook-draft.pdf
    drwxr-xr-x 2 pavlo pavlo 4.0K 2007-04-10 00:25 iso
    ls iso/
    rhel-5-client-x86_64-disc6.iso
    cd - change directory (navigate to some directory):
    Code:
    cd iso
    cp - copy a file:
    Code:
    cp ../handbook-draft.pdf .
    mv - move a file (also used to rename files):
    Code:
    mv handbook-draft.pdf howto.pdf
    rm - remove a file:
    Code:
    rm handbook-draft.pdf
    mkdir - make directory:
    Code:
    mkdir new
    pwd - show your current location:
    Code:
    pwd
    /home/pavlo/example/iso
    whoami - find out which user you are:
    Code:
    whoami
    pavlo
    date - display date and time
    Code:
    date
    Tue May 15 06:07:45 UTC 2007
    some commands are distribution specific, such as apt in Debian. Example:
    Code:
    apt-get install expect
    which downloads and installs "expect" package.

    man - most important of all commands (opens manual pages for other commands):
    Code:
    man expect
    q - quit or exit an application (for example when done reading man page, type q to exit).

    Here I found a list of some Linux commands: Linux bash commands - MAN Pages

    Try some

    If you mean using an email client to download/send email from/through your webmail account like gmail or yahoo, then I must say I don't have much experience with it (always go to the website directly). But I know it's not that complicated at all. In any case, it's better if you start new thread with good descriptive topic, and ask your email-related questions there. That way people will know what it's about and you will have more chances to get correct and fast answer. It will also help others, who search forums, to find their answers.
