Disabling Student-to-Student Emails

Why disable student-to-student email?

You may want to disable student-to-student email in your courses to prevent students from SPAMMING one another. Here’s how to:

  1. On the Control Panel, under Customization, click Tool Availability.
  2. On the Tool Availability page, under Email, click the Action Link.
  3. Click Email Settings.
  4. In the Available column, uncheck everything except All Teaching Assistant Users and All Instructor Users. This ensures that your students will not be able to use Blackboard to email each other but will still be able to email you and your TAs.
  5. Click Submit.
