Email Options

Option

Description

Track activity for messages sent to internal email addresses

A personal setting that, when turned on, tracks the status of a sent message (read or unread), and when the message was replied to and/or forwarded. When this setting is enabled, sent messages will contain a View Recipient Activity link in their message body.

Include original message in email replies

When you reply to an email, the original message is included with your reply.

Send a copy of each outgoing message to <recipient>

This option allows you to send a copy of all the emails you send to a specified address. Changing this address will change your external address for all mail sent from the Learning Environment. This option is only available when you are using Send Only email.

"Reply to" Email Address

This option allows you to set an address to receive replies to your emails, if different from the address the emails originated at. Use this option if you have Send-Only permissions as some applications will not deliver mail without a valid reply address.

Email Signature

Add text that will appear at the bottom of the messages you send.
