Reply To: You can choose the email address that students will see as the Reply To option if they reply to this email. It can either be your own admin email address, or the main email address that is listed in the system. This is the Reply to For the Confirmation emails
To:/CC: You can add additional addresses to be sent to or be CC'd in the email.
Subject/Message: Type in your subject and the email message that you want to put in.
Do not copy anything from Microsoft Word.
MS Word displays special characters in its own way that certain email programs can not read and will corrupt your data.
Copying from a simple text editor is fine, such as NotePad. You can edit the text however you like, keep in mind not all email clients display HTML, it might think it is spam. You can add attachments as well to the email. We recommend a maximum of 5MB total.
Sending: You can choose to email now or add it to a queue list that will go out in the middle of the night. The reason for this option is that emailing a high number of users will cause the system to slow down. You can send them out at night to avoid any disruption. Attachments greatly affects the slowness as well. Emailing over 50 users will automatically queue the emails to send out at night as that many emails would slow the system down.
5. Show Queue List
You can see the emails that are in the queue to be sent out that night. You can cancel them if you wish.
