About Email

The Email tool allows you to send email from within Learning Environment. You can also organize received mail using folders and store email addresses using the Address Book.

Possible email configurations

There are four different email configurations. Depending on which configuration your organization sets up, you may not have access to all email features described in this section.

Internal email addresses are addresses created by Learning Environment and tied to a user account in the learning management system. External email addresses are managed outside Learning Environment (e.g. email@gmail.com). You can associate an external email address with your Learning Environment email using Email Settings.
