  • If you do not want your students to be able to reply to the whole class, put the class list name(s) in the Bcc field instead of the To field.
  • The class lists are updated each morning at 5 a.m.
  • When you send the same e-mail to more than one class list of which you are a member, Outlook only sends you one copy of the e-mail. If you want to see if each group (class list) is receiving the e-mail, you would need to e-mail each class in a separate message.
