The email feature allows you to privately contact an author of a Forums post through your email client. It uses your default email application behind the scenes to complete and store the transaction for future review. The message will be viewable by the recipient in their UD mail account. The email feature is only available to site participants who have an Instructor role.
To send a private email:
- Navigate to the Forums tool in your Isidore course site.
- Click on a topic title.
- Locate a specific forum post that you want to respond to.
- Near the top of the message, click on Email. If your browser is configured with your email client, a new message should be ready to be composed.
- Once you’ve typed your message, click on the Send button. The message will be sent through your email client. A copy of the private messages you send will be available in your Sent folder. Students may view private messages in their UD mail inbox.
