Email addresses

Each user account has an email address associated when created, which for students is the iMail address and for instructors is the Los Rios email address. Instructor users can change their email addresses. Student users cannot change their email addresses. They can set up their iMail forwarding preferences to have messages sent to that address forwarded to any other email address. There is a second place to indicate an email address that all users can access. This is the Reply To address. To change this, select the Preferences link in the My Settings widget on the My Home page and then click on the Email tab. The Reply To address does not replace the email address associated with a user's account. If a user types something in this field, that address becomes the "From" address for all messages sent by that user from inside Desire2Learn. An instructor can always email from the Classlist to the students' iMail addresses.
