    we don't use the email mechanism for e-safety reasons (lack of tracking and no ability for the teacher to switch on/off during lessons).

    The Fronter help system says the following re email and indicates the answer to your question is Yes.

    Compose new email
    You can send email with attachments to one or more from Fronter's email system, you can also send email directly from the participant list.

    Send email from your email box:

    Go to the inbox and select the icon Compose new mail, fill in the following information:
    From: if you have more than one email account, you can choose from which address you want to send from.
    To: the recipient’s e-mail address.
    Cc: receives a copy of your e-mail.
    Bcc: receives a so-called “blind copy” of your e-mail. (This is not visible to other bcc recipient.) Select Add if you want to search for a receiver email address in the contact register.
    Subject: enter the title or subject of your e-mail.
    Use a HTML editor to compose the email: write your email message use the editor if you want. If you use Explorer or Mozilla you can create the text with an html editor. Next time you compose and e-post your choice will be remembered. Note: with the editor enabled there is a 50 000 character limit. This limit includes any html used in the text.

    type your message in the text field (you can add a signature, see instructions Create email box for external email)
    Include your contact card: set a tick if you want your information in the contact card to be attached to the email. This attachment is in the VCARD format
    Select Send mail
    Search for addresses:

    select Add behind the address field , search for field will be displayed.
    type the name of the person you want to search for and press Search…
    if you want to send an email to a whole group or to some persons in a group, find the contact group in the dropdown menu and press Search. Either tick off for The whole contact group or tick off in front of the wanted persons and press Add
    Send email directly from the contact list:

    enter the Contact tool on your personal toolbar and search for the members you wish to send an email

    set a tick in front of the names of participants you want to send an email
    select Send email and do as described above
    Add attachments: see description in the instructions: Read, reply, delete and forward email


    Add attachment:
    You can send an email with attachment. Either upload an attachment stored on your computer or get it from a room in Fronter. You can upload multiple files stored on your computer.

    find an attachment in Fronter; select Choose from folder if you want to attach a file stored in your personal my documents or in a Resources folder within a Fronter room
    choose room, choose archive, choose tool, choose folder and choose file
    Note! do not forget to select Save (the attachment)
    find an attachment on your computer; select Upload file
    upload only one file; select Browse...
    find the folder and the file on your computer and select Open
    Note! do not forget to select Save (the attachment)
    upload more than one file; select Multiple files
    answer Yes, on being questioned on installing and running an applet file
    choose Browse or Drag and drop the files and folders you need to attach
    Note! do not forget to select Save (the attachment)

    I found this but....

    is this for external emails say for example @tiscali.co.uk email to be viewed through fronter working a bit like outlook? or does fronter have its own internal messaging system so the address would end something like @northyorks.fronter.com? I have found "stickies" but i thought that was the messaging system.
