Hi
after so many years of finding this stuff fascinating thought I really must start uses this site a bit more.

Does anyone know how to use the PM option in order to send messages.

I can't even find my own messenger inbox etc ..... lol - which doesn't say much about my tech abilities ......and when I click on PM someone an error message appears

hope to hear
Sam

See the "X New Messages" link at the top right corner of this page? Click it, and you will go into your pm inbox.

Alternatively you could go to someone's profile and click "Send a Personal Message".

Hope that answers your question. :)

The "X New Messages" option is right beside My Assistant. Do you see it?

As for the error message, I think you would have to contact an administrator to settle this for you.

The error message I get when i go into a profile and click "send a PM" is

"
Board Message
Sorry, an error occurred. If you are unsure on how to use a feature, or don't know why you got this error message, try looking through the help files for more information.

The error returned was:
You are not allowed to use the messenger feature on this board "

You can't send or receive PMs until you have posted more than once... I suspect that you will find that you do have the ability to PM now... If you don't, post back here and we can investigate further...

Meanwhile, we don't encourage people to use PMs as a major way to communicate... If it is important to say, it it probably better said in a topic...
