Canvas - Inbox Guide for Instructors

Canvas course instructors can use the Inbox tool to send messages to individual students, groups, or entire classes. Students may also send Inbox messages to their instructor or classmates. The Inbox tool works similarly to email except that messages, which Canvas refers to as "conversations", reside in Canvas instead of Outlook. The Inbox is accessed by clicking the Inbox button in the Global Navigation menu along the left side of any Canvas page.
