Policies: Allow students to receive but not send messages

For School Admins/Sys Admins -- creating another policy divide. Students should be able to receive messages, but not send them.

Currently, I can turn off the messaging system completely for a user. But, I want my student (who mis-uses the system) to still receive the messages from the school.

    A viable workaround is to NOT use the messaging system, but instead to create a course where I post School-wide messages. Give this particular student 'student' access in the course and allow them not to comment on the messages.
    It does require that the student keep the course in the 'starred' section of their itslearning page. But, should work.

    Thanks for your idea! We don't have plans to extend the profile/policy functionality when it comes to messages, as this is already quite complex. We'll leave the idea open for voting to understand the need.
