Email options: check the appropriate box if you wish to send a copy of each outgoing message to your preferred email address (as set in MyCSULB). As we are not using Desire2Learn's internal email system, you do not need to worry about including the original message in replies or saving a copy of outgoing messages to you Sent folder, or the Display Options section.
Email Signature: use the text box and editing tools to create an email signature that is included at the bottom of all emails you send out through BeachBoard.
