After you have created your course be sure to publish it.  If a course is NOT published, instructors cannot send messages (may see an invalid recipient’s error). Once a course is published, messages can be sent through the Inbox and Announcements.  Also, students will not see assignments or course work until the course is published.

Note: Canvas allows messaging between members of a course.(not to anyone outside of the course)  It does not contain an email system.  The official email of Middlesex County College is Outlook email.
