The email tool allows messages to be sent to individuals and groups who participate in the module. Emails are sent to the email address listed in Blackboard, which for most users will be their UEA email account. You cannot use this tool to email people outside the module

If copying text into the Message box, it is good practice to copy the text without any formatting. To do this copy the text into Notepad before copying into the Message box within Blackboard.

When an email comes via Blackboard, the To: field and the Subject field contain the Blackboard module ID for the particular module.
