  3. Verify that "Check Spelling While Typing" is checked.

Printing an email

Note: This may not work in the light version.

  1. Double-click on the email in your "list" column to open in it's own window.
  2. Click on the three dots to access "more options" and select Print.

Please remember to only print items that are necessary. It is preferable to organize emails into folders for future access. Also, please never print confidential emails to a printer that students can access.
