apologies if this has been ask before

we are a large higher education Institute in the U.K. Looking forward to embracing canvas. My question is related to a past post that hinted that institutions can opt to have the canvas email turned off, if they already have an institutional email system.

the pro s for this seem to be removing confusion for all users relating to where their email is being sent. The con s seem to be you are removing the possibility to communicate in a different way within the canvas system. Has anyone out there got a strong opinion on this, or is there an alternative growing within the development bowels of canvas.
