Tips, Tricks, & Hidden Gems

Where do emails sent from OAKS go?

Today's Tech Tip was inspired by Dr. Tom Kent.


Like Tom, many of you use the OAKS classlist to email your students. But OAKS is not exactly like your Outlook or Gmail accounts.

  2. Choose Account Settings.
  3. Click on the Email tab.
  4. Click the box next to "send a copy of each outgoing message to..."
