Track activity for messages sent to internal email addresses
A personal setting that, when turned on, tracks the status of a sent message (read or unread), and when the message was replied to and/or forwarded. When this setting is enabled, sent messages will contain a View Recipient Activity link in their message body.
Include original message in email replies
When you reply to an email, the original message is included with your reply.
Send a copy of each outgoing message to [recipient]
This option allows you to send a copy of all the emails you send to a specified address. Click the Change email address link to specify the address you want to send copies to. Changing this address will change your external address for all mail sent from the Desire2Learn application. This option is only available when you are using Send Only email.
Save a copy of each outgoing message to the Sent Mail folder
A copy of the messages you send, with attachments, saves to the Sent Email folder. This only applies to users who can receive email.
"Reply to" Email Address
This option allows you to set an address to receive replies to your emails, if different from the address the emails originated at. Use this option if you have Send-Only permissions as some applications will not deliver mail without a valid reply address.
Add text that will appear at the bottom of the messages you send.
