Try this:

1. Start a new document
2. Create a Text Frame
3. Right click in the text frame
4. Select "Get text" and get your text

You will then have a frame with a small red X in the bottom right.
This means that all your text cannot fit into the frame, and therefore
you must create more text frames and "link" them so the text flows to
the next frame.

> 2) where do you find out the functions of the commands p30, p31, etc?


> 3) where do you find recommended page formatting settings?

These are called "styles".  Edit->Styles is the way to go.

Have a look at the Manual.

Help->Scribus Manual (or F1) and then select Documentation. A wealth
of information there.

You might want to set your email client not to send html
