In order to send myANC email and to receive myANC email from your instructor, you must have a current and accurate email address on file with myANC. To ensure everyone has a current email address ANC provides each student with a school email account.
 
All school email accounts end with @smail.anc.edu
 
Student email accounts are generally firstname a period lastname @smail.anc.edu (no spaces)
 
Student email passwords are set by default to be the student's school ID number.
 
Faculty/staff email accounts are generally first initial lastname @smail.anc.edu (no spaces)

E-mail sent through myANC arrives to your instructor from myANC.edu. You'd probably agree that's not helpful in identifying who sent the message and what it's about.
 
When e-mailing through myANC, please follow these rules:
  • Create a subject line that describes in 5-7 words the e-mail's topic.  
  • Please sign your first and last name at the end of the message. 
  • Please type the course you are in after your name.
  • Use proper grammar and punctuation. Save the all lower case, no punctuation, emoticons, and abbreviations for your texting to others.
Here's an example of a sample email that does not provide much information to your instructor:
 
Subject:  Having trouble with my assignment
Message:  I can't get the assignment to send.  It won't let me.
 
Improved version that gives the instructor enough information to provide you guidance:
 
Subject:  Having trouble with the Week 1 Paragraph assignment
Message:   
 
Mrs. Mills,
 
I typed up my Week 1 Paragraph assignment in Word and saved the file to my jump drive. When I went back to the assignment to send the file to you, I can't find the upload link to attach it to the assignment.  I saw it earlier.  Do you think it's because I am past the due date?
 
I appreciate any help you can give me.
