Faculty and Student E-mail


Are you a faculty member?
Do you communicate with your student via e-mail?
Did you know there is a document available to introduce your NEW students to their MCC e-mail account?
Did you know there is a system generated distribution list you can use to send your whole class a message?
Do you know how to use the distribution list when using Outlook Web Access?
Check out this attachment for the ‘Student E-mail Quick Start’ document.                
To send an e-mail to your class via Outlook Web Access, just type in the TO: field the semester code and then the class list with dashes.  Example: fl-eng-101-001

Now click the “Check Name” button on the toolbar, if the class list becomes underlined you are set to go!
Semester codes: FL – Fall, SP – Spring, SU – Summer
You must require your students to use their MCC e-mail accounts to get the messages you send.
Students can access their MCC e-mail account from ANY WHERE that has internet access.
You may also want to set the rule for your response time to their messages, 12, 24, 36 hours, not on weekends, etc…
