Creating an Email Archive for your site activates an email address that your site participants can use to communicate with each other. Email sent to your site's email address is copied to all site participants and owners, and all messages are stored in the Email Archive.

To create an Email Archive, follow these steps:

  1. In the menubar of the relevant course site or project site, click Site Info.

  2. Click Edit Tools.

  3. Check the box next to Email Archive, and then click Continue.

  4. In the field next to "Site email address:", enter an alias email address for the Email Archive, such as history_spring_05 . This address will be used to distribute email to site participants.

  5. Click Continue.

  6. A confirmation message will appear. Click Finish.
