After clicking on the icon you will come to the dashboard of the Email Marketing Module. For reference you can see the screenshot below.
The home dashboard of Odoo contains Email Marketing that maintains the Mailings, Mailing Lists, Reporting, and Configuration.
The dashboard of the Mailing tab helps to create a new email for any essential purpose.

Now you can fill in the required details. Here, the subject is the name of the mailing and the recipient is the person to receive the mail. Here we are choosing the type of recipient instead of a particular recipient and these are : Mailing List, Quotation, Lead/Opportunity, Attendee etc.
Configuration : The configuration menu in an Email Marketing dashboard assists in enabling email functions. We can manage campaigns and our emails by enabling the Mailing Campaign option.
