To be certain that your drafts or responses reach your conference professor and no one else, please send your work in a new message addressed to your conference professor. To help you keep a record of your submissions, we recommend you use a descriptive subject line that indicates which assignment you are submitting. Most students find it easiest to compose and save their assignments on a word processor. To send the assignment, we recommend copying the text and pasting it into a mail message (rather than using an attachment). This process is simple, it generally avoids problems with incompatible file formats that can make an attachment look like alphabet soup on your reader's screen, and it provides your professor with an e-mail version that is ready for immediate comment. This process does assume that you are working in a Windows environment on an IBM/compatible or a Mac, and that you are using a mail reader program such as Eudora, Pegasus, Netscape Mail, or Microsoft Mail.
