Brightspace’s email tool is an interface with the Langara Outlook email system.
Contacting Your Students Before Classes Start
You can use the Brightspace email tool to send email to students before the semester has started. It will be sent to their Langara email address, and any responses will come to your Langara Outlook email inbox.Back to top of page
Brightspace Send-Only Email
As of December 2019, it is no longer possible to receive email messages in Brightspace. You can still compose and send messages, and your message will be sent from your Langara Office365 email address and sent to your recipient’s Langara email address. Any correspondence from that point will take place within Langara’s Outlook email system.

Brightspace Email Settings
Brightspace email settings have changed. To see your settings, click on the Email icon and click on Settings.
By default, all sent messages are saved in your Brightspace Sent folder. If you would also like a copy of sent messages sent to your Langara address, click the box next to “Send a copy of each outgoing message to firstname.lastname@example.org.” This will allow you to forward messages you’ve already sent, for example if you send a message to someone and later need to send the same message to someone else.Back to top of page
