Bruce Tenison gave written permission to update - Thank You Bruce!

The unm-unmmymessages2017.war (version 2.3.1-q4.2017) is the WAR file for Blackboard Learn (Original Experience only).

My Messages B2 will NOT work in Ultra (since B2s that have a non-system admin UX will not work in Ultra).

The University of New Mexico is currently running unm-unmmymessages2017.war on Blackboard Learn Q4 2017 CU2 (Self Hosted).

The University of New Mexico has also successfully installed and tested unm-unmmymessages2017.war on BlackBoard Learn Q2 2018 Developer Virtual Machine (DVM).

My Messages may work with SaaS, but UNM is not maintaining My Messages with SaaS due to limited UNM resources since believe this would best be done as a Custom B2 migration to LTI + REST API.
