What is the Email tool?

The Email tool allows user to send an email message to site participants by role, section, or group, and also provides a field for specifying non-site participant email addresses.

The Email tool works using the sender's external email address, which is specified in the user's account details. Typically, this email address is the user's institutional email.

Note: The Email tool can work in conjunction with the Email Archive tool to post email messages to the course archive.

To access this tool, select the Email tool from the Tool Menu of your site.

So does this tool 'replace' Messages or is it just being renamed?

No, the Email tool is a separate core tool from Messages. Both Messages and Email are available in Sakai 10. Most institutions choose to enable one or the other in their instance of Sakai so as to avoid confusion.

Hi Dave,

No, it does not replace Messages. Sakai has two core tools, an Email tool and a Messages tool.

Would be nice to consolidate them someday into one tool, but there are no plans that I know of at the present.

Thanks.
