Send a test email as described in the 1st announcement on the Online Courses page. You need to make sure you know what you're doing before you have to send your first assignment. Successfully sending your test email is a course requirement. Your course schedule gives you the date by which I prefer you send it. If you must send it late, I will accept it without penalty but I will not accept any assignments or questions about the course from you until you successfully send your test email.
