Your email messages are stored in the Email Archive, which is
accessible to all participants of your course site or
project site. When you first access the site, if you do not
see the tool
Email Archive on the menubar, you
will need to add it. For instructions, see Creating an Email Archive.
You can send messages to your site's participants from your email
account with your preferred email client (e.g.,
Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora,
Mac OS X Mail, or Thunderbird). All messages
will be stored in the Email Archive and visible to all
participants. To view your site's email address, in the menubar, click
Email Archive. For more information, see Sending mail to course or project site participants.
Note: It is not possible to send email to individual participants through the site. Messages sent to the site's email address will go to all participants.
Messages are sent to the email address in your profile. You do not need to log into the application to read your mail. However, if you do not wish to receive mail from the site, or if you'd rather receive mail in a daily digest format, you can change your notification preferences from your My Workspace. For instructions, see Changing notification preferences.
