E-mails sent from My Courses in My MC use a different compose window than messages you send directly from your E-mail Inbox in My MC. In order to retain a copy of messages sent from My Courses, you must add your e-mail address to the CC line in the compose window so that you receive a carbon copy of the e-mail you’re sending. Alternatively, if you click on the E-mail icon in My MC, this opens to your Inbox. E-mails composed from here are saved to your Sent folder by default. To confirm the setting, click on the Options tab, then select “Settings” (located next to “Personal Information”). Ensure that “Save a copy of all sent messages in Folder: Sent” is checkmarked.

E-mail messages in your trash folder may be automatically deleted on a regular basis, especially if you are nearing the max storage quota for your e-mail account.
If you do not want certain e-mail messages to be deleted, do not store them in the trash folder. Keep them in your inbox or create a folder(s) and move the messages to a folder(s). Note: All messages stored in folders, including the inbox, take up storage space.
