E-mail Class using mail.dixie.edu (web access)

The following instructions describe the process of emailing your class using banner self service and outlook web access.

But first we want to remind you that we value the student’s privacy here at Dixie. When emailing more than one student always make sure to use the blind carbon copy or bcc field. This makes it so the other students’ email addresses don’t show up in the email.

Now on to the instructions.

Please make sure that you have access to the Banner Self Service(MyDixie) and mail.dixie.edu.

First open Internet explorer and navigate to Banner Self Service and login.

After logging in click on the “Faculty services” tab.
