Managing email

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.

Sending messages

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.

Receiving messages

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.
