I am disappointed to have to bump this thread again  :evil:
It is frustrating when I offer advice privately, only for the intended recipient to ignore my PM. I may resort to posting on the open forum and shaming those who cannot be bothered to look  :think:

Can people please check their PMs? I have sent loads in recent weeks and many of them are not being read and I am having to repeat my mesages by email.

Thank you!

Dave

A couple of points. My profile is set to receive a pop up message when a PM arrives, but it stopped working. I've tried re-setting it in the hope that it starts to function again. I also have the e-mail alert set, but AOL, in it's wisdom, determines that the alert is spam, despite the ATF admin e-mail being in my address book. It's worth members setting their profile to get one or both alerts in the event of receiving any PMs.

I know, Paul, the system can be flaky and even if everything is set right, messages do not always get through. It is not just a reminder to check inboxes but for senders to check their outgoing messages to see if they have been delivered to recipients inboxes and not just sent.

Checking is not the problem - I write a private message and it seems to be stuck in my outbox - why is it not sending?

Thanks

Hi Tim, it stays in your outbox until the recipient has read it, then it goes to your sent messages file :wink:

Pardon my ignorance, how do know if you have a PM? When I checked on the User Control Panel, the only reference I could find to PMs is how to send one, not to receive one.
Is the Inbox described above part of this site, or a normal Email?
And finally, is all this written down somewhere, if so, where?

Top left of the screen, next to your log in status new messages :idea: You should get a pop-up with a new message - unless you've turned it off (in your User Control Panel) :wink:
Look in the FAQs near the top of the screen on the right :arrow:

Thanks, I was fixated on the right of the screen where most of the admin stuff seems to be.
