Using the Mailbox

The mailbox feature allows you to send and receive messages to and from users on the RRN.

To learn how to find users of the RRN, read the help page about “Users”. The mailbox works almost exactly like regular email. To open your mailbox, click on the “mailbox” link next to your name in the top right hand corner of your screen.

Try it! Try sending and receiving messages in your mailbox.


  1. To compose a message, click on the “compose” button on the left hand corner of your screen.
  2. Then, start typing the person’s name who you would like to send the message to, in the space provided, and select the name from the drop down menu. You can send the message to multiple individuals as well. Then, provide a subject for the message in the space provided.
