* Do not reply to this email. The email will not reach the sender.
* The received email in this example says that a new message has been received in the class support system. To read the message, log into the class system or click on the link.
* Because free input is now available for faculty members with the email notification feature, a student may check a message without logging in to the class support system, depending on their settings.
