The Email Archive gives your site its own email address that
participants can use for communicating with each other. When you first
access the site, if you don't see the
Email Archive tool on
the menubar, you will need to add it. See Adding Email Archive to your site.
You can send email to your site's participants from your email
account, just as you would to any other email address. All email messages
will be stored in the Email Archive and visible to all
participants. To view your site's email address, in the menubar, click
Email Archive. For more, see Sending mail to site participants via Email Archive.
Note: You cannot use Email Archive to send mail to particular individuals. Mail sent to your site's email address is received by all site participants. To send messages to individual participants or a group, use the Messages tool; see Sending, forwarding, and replying to messages.
Email Archive messages are sent to the email address listed under "Account" in My Workspace. You do not need to log into the application to read your mail. However, if you do not wish to receive mail from the site, or if you'd rather receive mail in a daily digest format, you can change your notification preferences from My Workspace. For instructions, see Changing notification preferences.
