What it does

The Messages tool is an internal course mail system for messaging between individuals and groups.

Key concepts

Viewing messages: Unread messages are in bold; viewed messages are marked as read, but you can mark any read message as unread. By default, messages are listed chronologically, but you can select the By Conversation view to display messages in indented threads.

Composing messages: A rich-text interface allows rich text, plain text, and HTML editing. See rich-text editor. You can also add attachments.

Note: Pasting text into the rich-text editor should preserve most formatting, but some types of formatting, such as colored text, may need to be added manually in the editor after pasting.

Message priority: You can set priority levels for messages to distinguish important messages from others.

Things to consider

  • Using Messages, you can send messages to another individual, a select number of individuals, or a select number of groups.
  • Messages you send using the Send Cc option are sent directly to participants' email addresses; copies also appear in your Sent folder and the recipients' Received folders within Messages. Recipients must reply using Messages, not their email programs.
