You must be logged in to access Private Messaging and you can access through:
• Members Home/User Control Panel/Private messages or
• Top left on on any forum page Forum/User Control Panel/Private messages or
• Private message in a members post or
• By clicking on a members name anywhere it is displayed ie member currently on line, last post etc then click Send private message

To Send
• The top box (below Compose Message which is a trap for young players!) is for recipients. If you know the name(s) you can just type, or you can click Find a Member and select by alphabetical order or what you know about the member. Just like any email system you can select multiple recipients and send blind carbon copies (BCC).

To Reply to a Message
• View the incoming message then click Reply to message

Then
• Type your message in the box below the smilies.
• Click Preview or Submit. Most times your message will be Previewed, just click Submit again to send.
• Your message will stay in the Outbox (1) until the recipient picks up the message, then it will be moved to Sent Messages.

You do need to empty out your Inbox and Sent Messages periodically, instructions in later post.

To be notified by email of a new message click Members Home/User Control Panel/Board Preferences/Notify me on new private messages.

Another tip is click on the members name to view their profile. If they have set their profile to allow email, you will be able to communicate directly via email.
Hi Wendy

I can't see how to delete my PMs. My inbox is getting full!

Hope you are well

Hi,
I must be in a dumb state or something today, as I can't send private messages any further than the outbox! How do you send things from the outbox?

The PM goes out of the outbox when the other person picks it up
Dx 1992 OMS 25-2-09
question about PM's: is there a place to save old inbox items or do we have to trash some
when we get to 50?
that is, is there a "back-up" inbox?
I am accumulating quite a few chestnuts which I can copy/paste into my personal documents somewhere.
just wondering if I can store them on the site and keep my inbox more current.

thanks for all your work . LOVE this site.

The limit is 50 messages for each of the three standard mailboxes, however you can add more folders:
User Control Panel/Private Messages/Rules, Folders & Settings. Each folder has the same 50 message limit.
There is an option at the end of each message to 'Move to folder'.
Thanks for these instructions, Wendy. It all seems so easy now!

Hi Wendy

I had a spam message sent to me Sept 30.
I forwarded this and reported to the moderator, but have not had a reply to date.
It was asking for money to be sent. Click on website etc.

cheers
