When you login to UR Courses, your UR Courses page will show an email icon for each one of your courses, if you have something in your inbox for that course. If you see an email icon for a course, go into that course right away and check your inbox.

Email sent by students and instructors using the course mail tool stay within the course, although you can choose to be notified of email to your U of R email address (@uregina.ca), so an important habit is to check your UR Courses email on a daily basis. The mail tool works like most email programs and has an Inbox, Sent, and Trash as well as a New Message, Manage Folders and Email Notification icons to use.

NOTE: If students have Forum subscriptions turned on, all forum postings will be emailed to the U of R email address (@uregina.ca) that appears in the student's profile, NOT the Course email area accessed within the course. Unless your instructor has removed this option to make sure no one misses any important information, you can choose not to get these emails by unsubscribing to the forum(s).
