How do I use the email tool in Talon?

Last Updated: May 27, 2016 08:50AM CDT

Talon has an email tool that allows you to send email to your instructor and classmates from within your course.  This is NOT an internal messaging system. Replies to email will NOT come into Talon.  Email can only be received and replied to from your Kirkwood student email. Talon email is send only.  

To send an email through Talon:

  1. Click on the Email link in the Navbar
  2. Enter the email address of your instructor or classmates.  You can also click on the Address Book to select receipients.  
  3. Enter a subject.  DO NOT REMOVE the "Talon" and course name in the subject line as this will tell your recipient that this email is coming from Talon. 
  4. Enter your message.  Remember to be professional and follow the rules of netiquette when composing your email.  
  5. Attach a file if desired. 
  6. Click "Send" (the send button is at the top left of the window)

Replies to your message will be in your Kirkwood student email account.  You will NOT see copies of your message or replies in Talon.
