To see a PM as soon as it arrives, go to Your Account, click on Change Info, scroll about half way down until you see:

Pop up window on
new Private Message:

Will open a new popup
window to inform you
when new private
messages arrive


In the option box, click Yes.

It sometimes takes a little while for the message to move along. Check back and see if it's there now.

When the receiving party hasn't picked it up yet, you will find it in the Outbox.

Let's see how this works. I actually just sent you some comment to randomly test the system. Here a greeting post card shall we say.

This may be the rare case of a non-send.

Normally, this situation occurs when the intended recipient does not pick up the message.

Aaron or Dan would have to debug the problem if your account isn't sending.

Yes, if it is in your outbox, it hasn't been read yet is all.

I have read all of your pm's to me.

Ah. I thought it was similar to an email outbox, not able to read until actually sent.
Thanks for the clarification.

it stays in the outbox until your recipient reads it...cool feature i think.

Private Message not working

Unread postby Micki » Tue 19 Dec 2006, 18:14:15

When I try to PM, I get a message saying this is for registered users only, although I was logged on.

I can check my own messages but not send new ones.

Sent messages stay in the Outbox until they are read, then they show up in the Sent box.
