Quickmail provides you with an additional communication method in Moodle. It is useful for bulk emails and, unlike other communications from Moodle, it will be delivered immediately regardless of any digest settings in a user’s profile. However, it is an outgoing mail service only. Replies, if allowed, will be to the sender’s email address.

  1. Go to the course on which you would like to use it and Turn editing on.
  2. Scroll down to Add block and select Quickmail from the list.quickmail1
