How-to: Private Messages (PM)

Post #1 by Site Admin » Wed Sep 30, 2015 1:56 pm

In the upper right area you will find a link to the Private messages:

When clicking the link you will be redirected to the Private messages area in the User control panel:

Private messages are sent throught the forumsoftware. They are shown in your Outbox until the recepient has opened the PM. Then they show as Sent messages.

The PM-function is powerful.
You can create own folders and rules for filtering PMs.

A small box is showing the message colors.
PMs from friends and foes and important ("marked") messages are highlighted:

You can mark messages as important messages by ticking the checkbox on the right side and then selecting "Mark as important" (or Unmark if you want to remove the importance).

Besides sending PMs via the User control panel you can also send them directly from topics.
In the avatar area there is a small icon "Contact".
A small popup is shown with links to the PM- or Board-Email functions:

When using the PM-link a new PM is created and the recepient is added automatically, the PM contains the text from the post and a link to the post. Very convenient.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.
