How do I use Conversations?

Hi Jo Irving...
I would like to briefly expand on what James Kocher has already correctly posted for you. The Conversations (inbox) area of Canvas is not technically e-mail. It is actually messaging. Here's why. In your user preferences, you can set up not only how you want to be notified (this could be via e-mail address, text message, Twitter, etc.), but you can also set up the frequency of those notifications (right away, daily, weekly, not at all). So, for example, it's entirely possible that if you send a message through Canvas, the receiver of the message may get it via e-mail or some other means, and that person may or may not get it right away...depending on his/her own notification preferences.
Here is a great Guides for you on how all of this works:

Hope this is of some help to you!
