Reading/Composing Email

Getting Familiar with Nexus


Nexus email is configured to send email to and receive email from other users in Learning Environment.

  1. Students can email other students from within Nexus
  2. Students can forward incoming Nexus email to an external email address.
  3. Students cannot email from inside Nexus to an external email address (eg. Gmail, Hotmail).
  4. Students cannot email from an external email address (eg. Gmail, Hotmail) BACK to a Nexus email address.

Viewing your Email:

Access your email from the Email icon in the notifications section of the Minibar. The Email Inbox opens.











Navigating the Inbox:

  1. Messages listed in a Bold font are unread messages. Opening an unread message will change its status to "read".
  2. Click the subject of a message to view the email in either a new window or a preview pane, which appears below the list of messages. You can change your settings to choose your viewing preference by clicking Settings in the top right corner of your Inbox. 

NOTE: In the Settings area, there are Forwarding Options that allow you to forward received mail to another email account. Keep in mind that not all mail may forward successfully and you must return to Nexus email to respond to messages, even though you will be able to view them elsewhere.
