How Do I Send E-mail from Blackboard?

Students can send email to the instructor, other students, groups, or all users within the Bb course. E Although the e mail message is sent through Blackboard, it uses the csustan.edu email system. Email addresses of recipients are suppressed (BCC) so none will be visible in the messages.

On the CSUStan Bb tab:

  1. Click Send E-mail in the Tools box.
  2. Click the name of your course.
  3. Choose the recipient(s).
  4. Fill in Subject and Message fields.
  5. Attach a file if desired.
  6. Click a Submit button.

From Within a Course:

  1. Click Tools & Communication on the main navigation menu (defalt name, your instructor may change it).
  2. Click Send E-mail.
  3. Choose the recipient(s).
  4. Fill in Subject and Message fields.
  5. Attach a file if desired.
  6. Click a Submit button.

I have a Hotmail/Yahoo/Gmail/etc. account and have not been receiving mail from my instructor, what's wrong?

Blackboard sends mail to your csustan.edu account using the Bcc field to ensure user privacy. If you forwarded your CSUStan email to another account, that provider may not accept the message as their way of limiting spam and protecting your account. Check your csustan.edu email account account for email from your instructors.
