This means that email sent via D2L (using a yahoo email address) will not be delivered. DePaul has no control over this.

If you need to send an email to your class, please be sure to use the "Email Classlist" button located at the top of the Classlist page. This has replaced the "Email everyone on this tab" button that we had in the old D2L version. Please see the attached screenshot or these instructions: http://d2l.iddresources.org/pdf/Email%20Quickguide.pdf This is important because if you have your Classlist view set to 20 students per page and you try to check them all and click the "Email" button, the email will only go to the selected students on that page. So, any students beyond 20 will not be included in the email.It's also a good idea to add any important emails to students as News Items in your course: http://d2l.iddresources.org/pdf/News%20Quickguide.pdf
