Canvas - How to receive a copy of messages sent to your Canvas Inbox.
While the Inbox's Sent folder retains copies of course messages sent, students and instructors may wish to keep a copy of their messages in their university email account.

Note that replies to email messages are added to the Inbox conversation, but attachments do not always work.
