    Private Messaging

    Private Messages

    Registered members may send each other private messages.

    How do I send Private Messages
    ?

    Private messages work a little similiar to email but are limited to registered members of this forum. You may be able to include BB code, smilies, and images in the private messages that you send.

    You may send a private message to a member of this forum by clicking the 'Send a Message' link in the My Messages section of your user settings control panel (more info), or by clicking the 'Send a Private Message' link in the drop down menu that appears in that member's posts when you click on their username.

    When you send a message you have the option to save a copy of it in your 'Sent Items' folder.

    Shown below is how to access your private messaging; click where the blue arrow is pointing:

    How do I work with Private Message Folders?

    By default, you will have two folders in your private message area. These are the 'Inbox' and the 'Sent' Items folders.

    The 'Inbox' folder contains any new messages you receive. It allows you to view all the messages you have received, along with the name of the person who sent it, and the date and time it was sent.

    The 'Sent Items' folder contains a copy of any messages that you have sent, when you have specified that you wish to keep a copy for future reference.

    You can create additional folders for your messages by clicking the 'Edit Folders' link.

    Each folder has a set of message controls which allow you to select messages, then either move them to one of your custom folders or delete them. Once you have selected your messages you can choose the following options in the 'Selected Messages' box at the bottom of the list:

    Move to Folder
    Delete
    Mark as Read
    Mark as Unread
    Download as XML
    Download as CSV
    Download as TEXT
    Deselect All Messages

    You will need to periodically delete old messages, as the administrator has set a limit on the number of private messages you can have in your folders. If you exceed this number, you will not be able to send or receive new messages until you delete some old ones.

    If you would like to keep a record of your messages before you delete them, you can use any of the 'Download as...' options listed above to take a copy and store them on your own computer.

    Whenever you read a message, you will have the option to reply or forward it to another member of the forum. You also have the ability to forward that message to up to 5 members of your contact list.

    Below is a screen shot of a typical Private Message generation:

    The recipients will be entered where the blue arrow is pointing.

    The title will be entered where the grren arrow is pointing.

    The body of your message goes where the orange arrow is pointing.

    If you want to add similies to enhance your message, click on the icon you want or if it is not displayed, click on more to get more. red arrow

    To Submit or Preview select either of the black arrows.
