Your instructors, classmates and Montana Tech will regularly send important emails to your Montana Tech Outlook account. It is very important that you check your inbox daily.

There are several kinds of notification emails. Outlook will send you email notifications when you subscribe to a forum. This is called Forum Subscription.

To set up your Forum Subscription settings, open your Profile by first clicking on your name in the top right.

Edit Profile

Next click Profile in the menu that appeared.

The Profile button is now found under your name in the top right.

In your profile page, click Preferences.

Click preferences.

Within the Preferences page click the Forum Preferences link.

Forum Preferences link is located on the Profile Preferences page

Here you have a choice. You can choose to automatically subscribe to forums you post in and have Moodle keep track of forum posts you have already read, OR you can subscribe to an individual forum on the forum page.

Note that instructors are also able to subscribe their students to certain forums so, in some instances, you may be automatically subscribed to a forum.

If you are subscribed to a forum, you will receive an email digest about the latest posts. There are three kinds of email digests to choose from:

1.  No digest: one email for every new post

2.  Complete: once-daily email containing all new forum posts

3.  Subject: once-daily email containing only the subjects of new forum posts

Email digest type

Select an option, then click Update Profile at the bottom of the page to save your changes.
