Sending a group email

  1. Click on Send Email.

  1. Select the recipients in the Available to Select box and click the right-pointing arrow to move them into the Selected box. A back arrow is available to move a user out of the recipient list. Click Invert Selection and selected users are no longer highlighted and those users that are not selected will be highlighted.

Note: For Windows, to select multiple users in a list, press the SHIFT key and click the first and last users. To select users out of sequence, press the CTRL key and click each user needed. For Mac systems, press the COMMAND key instead of the CTRL key. You can also use the Select All function to send an email to all users.

  1. Type your Subject. Your message will not be delivered without a subject.

  1. Type a Message.

  1. Click Attach a file to browse for file from your computer. You can attach multiple files. After you add one file, the option to attach another file appears.

  1. Click Submit.

A receipt page appears after the message is sent listing all recipients. The receipt page does not confirm that users received the message. It only confirms that the message was sent.

Troubleshooting

  • Email programs, such as Gmail, Hotmail, or Yahoo, may identify email from Blackboard Learn as junk mail and either automatically delete it or move it to a junk mail folder. If you have problems, check your user preferences or options for settings regarding the handling of junk email in your email program.
