How to Use the Email Tool
Brightspace email is now send-only
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.
