Doesn't seem familiar? Jump to the "Ultra" help about contacting your instructor.

You can contact your instructor through the course messages tool, or by email. Messages activity remains inside the system. You can't view or send messages outside of your course. To view the messages for the course you're in, select the Messages link on the course menu or on the Tools page. Your instructor determines which links appear on the course menu and which tools are available.

Using the course email tool, you can send messages from your course to course members' external email accounts without having to switch to your email provider, such as Gmail or Yahoo. You can send emails to individual users or to groups of users.

Email is a send-only tool. You do not receive emails in Blackboard Learn.
