Mailtool allows users to send a message to one or more of the site participants from within Sakai. It also provides WYSIWYG editing, file attachment, and group/section-aware recipient selection.
On the Compose page, you can select recipient(s) by checking the box next to their name. If you want to send a copy to a non-site-participant, enter the recipent's email address in the "Other recipient(s)" text field. If you want to attach file(s), click "Attach a file". Enter a subject and message. You can also check "Send me a copy" if you want before clicking Send Mail. There is also an option to add the email to the Email Archive tool by clicking Add to Email Archive, visible to all site participants
Note: The Add to Email Archive, visible to all site participants will not show up if the Email Archive tool is not added to the menubar, see Adding, editing or removing site tools
