Email Archive: Overview
What it does
Each site has an automatically generated site email address, which you
can view in the
Email Archive feature. Email sent to the site
email address is copied to all site participants and owners.
All messages sent to your site's email address are stored in the Email
Archive. The email sent to site participants will indicate if
there was an attachment, and will provide a link to get the attachment
from the worksite itself.
Members of the group can choose how often they want to receive email
sent to the site's email address in the
in My Workspace.
Mail Alias: Site owners can create an easy-to-remember
alias for the site's email address. To set up the alias, click
Things to consider
- Instructors can use Email Archive to automatically update email
groups for course sites. As students drop or add the course, they will
be dropped or added from the email group appropriately.
- Users who participate in more than one site can choose to
receive email either as it is sent, or in digest mode, with all posts
for the day sent in a single email message.
- Messages can be sent from any email program
to the email address listed at the top of your Email Archive page.
- Clicking a column header (
Sent) will sort the messages by that header.
- When sorting by subject, clicking the up arrow will arrange the
messages alphabetically. When sorting by date received, clicking the
up arrow will order the messages from most recent to oldest. In both
cases, clicking the down arrow reverses the order.
- The Email Archive uses plain text to format messages, even if
their original format was HTML or rich text. Site participants can
view a message in its original format by clicking the link provided in
the Email Archive.
- The Email Archive uses links to handle attachments. Instead of
receiving an attachment directly in the body of an email message, site
participants can click a link to view the attachment. This feature
helps prevent site participants from going over quota.
