Sending DAILY Writing Electronically
The Writing@CSU server will be offline for server maintenance, February 11th, beginning at 1:00 pm Mountain time. The downtime should last from one to two hours. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Choose one of these techniques for submitting your DAILY writing through e-mail:
Don't forget that your DAILY writing is due in one of our electronic mailboxes by 5 p.m. on the day it's assigned.
- If your response will be relatively short, you could just write it in a Sharkmail or Happy Mail message. If you use some other mail program from off-campus, be sure that you can edit messages before you choose this option. Some-mailers require you to backspace over (and thus erase) text if you want to make any changes.
- If your response is longer or if you're not sure you'll be able to finish it in a short time, use WordPerfect (or any other word processor) to compose and edit your response. The easiest way to get the response into the e-mail message is to save your message, highlight it and then click on the Copy button, close your word processor, open your mailer and begin a new message, click in the message space, click Edit in the pull-down menu line, click Paste. Your response should appear in the e-mail message area. Be sure to fill in the To and Subject lines and send your message.
- If your response is long, consider sending it as an attachment to a mail message. Compose and edit your response in a word processing file, save it as a plain text (or DOS) file, and close it in your word processor. Then get into your mailer and follow the instructions for attaching files.
