Sending a message

To send a message:

  1. In your site's menubar, click Messages.
  2. On the Messages screen, click Compose Message.
  3. Next to "To", use the list to select the individual(s) or group(s) you want to receive the message. To select multiple participants, Ctrl-click (in Windows) or Command-click (in Mac OS X). You can also choose to send your message to the entire site, or to all users with a particular role (e.g., all instructors or all assistants).
  4. If you wish to blind carbon-copy someone, click on the "Add Bcc" link and select the recipients you want to Bcc.
  5. If you would like to send the message out to the recipients' UD email addresses, check the box next to "To internal mail and Recipients' Email Address(es)."
  6. Next to "Subject", type the subject of your message.
  7. Under "Message", use the rich-text editor to compose your message.
    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.
  8. Under "Attachments", you can attach a file from your local computer or from Resources, or specify the URL for a file on the web. For instructions, see Options for adding attachments.
  9. To send your message, click Send.

  3. Click the message you wish to forward.
  4. Click Forward.
