Can I email an announcement to my class?

I often get emails that I'd like to pass on to my class, but copying and pasting is a pain. It would be nice to be able to forward that email to everyone in my class or to send the email as an announcement. Canvas has very good email integration, but so far, I haven't figured out an easy way to email everyone through Canvas — may by forwarding the email to a Canvas address that would then be redirected to the students of the class.

 

Does anyone know a trick to get that to work?

 

Alternatively, I suppose I could use the RSS feature to send an announcement to the class, if I could get the email to show up in an RSS feed. I'm looking for a one or two click approach so it's easy to share email notices with a class. It would be great if something similar were possible with Twitter as well.

 

Any advice?
