Send an Email to Members of a Class in WyoWeb Course Studio

Introduction

Sending an email to a large number of class members from the WyoWeb Course Studio utility can cause an error when using Microsoft Internet Explorer. This is a know Microsoft issue.  When the total characters in all of the email addresses is greater than 2024, clicking on the Email Class link produces no results. This error occurs when using the Internet Explorer web browser. This error may rarely occur when using the Mozilla Firefox web browser.

Procedure
