What is the purpose of having a Private Messaging system?

The Private Messaging System is perfectly suited for:

1. Contacting another Forum Member without cluttering up the Forum.
2. Sending a personal note, complement, congratulations, etc.
3. Exchanging private contact information between Forum Members.
4. Making arrangements to meet other Forum Members.
5. Organizing group events.

Do I have to be a Forum Member to access the Private Messaging system?

Yes. You must be logged in as a Regular or Senior Member to use the Private Message System.

How do I activate the Private Messaging system?

The Private Message System and the Email Notification function, which sends you an anonmyous email notifying you when you have received a new Private Message, are currently activated for all Regular and Senior Forum Members, and are automatically activated for all new Regular Members.

How do I access my Private Messages?

To read, send or reply to your Private Messages, please select the "Private Messages" link at the top of the Forum's Table of Contents page.

What are the limits on using the Private Messaging system?

Currently, Forum Members are limited to a maximum total of 100 Private Messages in their mailbox, including messages in their inbox and their stored messages. In addition, Private Messages are each limited to 3,000 characters in length.

How do I send a Private Message to another Forum Member?

To send a Private Message to another Forum Member, you may select the "New Message" button at the bottom of your message list, or you may simply select the "PM" button at the bottom of one of the Member's reports.

What can I do if I want to contact another Member who has his PM option turned off?

You can't. If they've turned their PM system off, then they don't want to receive Private Messages. That's it. End of game.
