Your Inbox & Reading Messages Sent to You
The BOE Message center allows you to send messages to any member or groups of members within the BOE community. While messages can only be sent to people within BOE, you can choose to have messages that you receive automatically forwarded to your own e-mail address. For instructions on e-mail forwarding, see e- mail and message center preferences.
Accessing the BOE Message Center
You can access your Message Center Inbox by clicking on the “Inbox” link in the Message Center area of your BOE home page.
Or by clicking on the “Messages” link in the quick link bar at the top of each page:
Reading Messages Sent to You
Messages you receive from others will appear in your Message Center Inbox. Here are some tips to help you navigate your Inbox:
- Identify the status of each e-mail as read (gray) or unread (yellow)
- Click on the subject to read the message
- Click on the sender's name to view their profile
- Click the gray "X" button to send a message to your wastebasket
When reading a message, you have the options to reply to the original sender, reply to all (including other recipients), or forward the message to other people or groups. For more information on this topic, see instructions for sending messages.
When you are finished reading a message, you can either close the message and return to your inbox, or delete the message to send it to your wastebasket.
Note: Your wastebasket contains any messages deleted from your inbox. You can permanently delete messages from your wastebasket by visiting the wastebasket and clicking on the gray "X" button next to any message. Messages deleted from the wastebasket cannot be recovered.
