Personal Messages - PLEASE READ
« on: November 03, 2013, 07:55:04 AM »
The forum provides a way for members to exchange private messages via the Personal Message (PM) system. When a PM is sent to a member, that member will receive an automatic email notification that they have received a new PM (so that they can go to the forum, log in, read and, if desired, reply to the PM).
The notification email contains the text of the PM. DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! That just goes back to an unmanned forum email address, NOT the sender. The only way to reply to the sender is to use the PM system in the forum. There is a link in the notification email that goes to the right place to do that.

If a member does not want to receive an email notification of a PM, that can be turned off by changing the member's Profile.

Here we go again . . .

Guys, guys! . . . Some of you are screwing up on your Personal Messaging by hitting "Reply" on the notification email that you receive. DO NOT DO THIS!!! The person you are trying to reply to will NOT receive the reply. You have to use the PM system to reply to PMs.

This is just how the forum software works - I can't change that.
