Instructors can send email messages to one, several, or all Classlist members at once. Instructors can also send individual emails using the email icon.
If class members reply to an email, their messages will go to the sender's Outlook inbox.
Note: When emailing multiple class members, D2L adds the email addresses in the BCC field. Keep them there so that individual users are not identified when sharing sensitive information.
The email icon in the D2L minibar can be used to compose emails. This tool retains a record of sent mail only. All replies will go to to the sender's Outlook inbox.
Note: If emailing multiple class members, it is recommended to put the email addresses in the BCC field so that individual users are not identified when sharing sensitive information.
By default, there is no email signature for emails sent through the Classlist, but instructors can modify this.
Note: Replies to emails sent through D2L will go to a user's DePaul Outlook inbox. There is a field to modify the "Reply to" email address in Settings. However, it is not recommended to modify this field because delivery to external email accounts cannot be guaranteed.
In addition to emailing users, a best practice is to also post the same information as a News item. ViewUpdating the News Widget for more information.
