Your personal messenger acts much like an email account in that you can send and receive messages and store messages in folders.
Send a new PM
This will allow you to send a message to another member. If you have names in your contact list, you can choose a name from it - or you may choose to enter a name in the relevant form field. This will be automatically filled in if you clicked a 'PM' button on the board (from the memberlist or a post). If the administrator allows, you may use BB Code and HTML in your personal message. If you choose to check the 'Add a copy of this message to you sent items folder' box, a copy of the message will be saved for you for later reference. If you check the 'Get notified when this message is read' box, you will receive a PM informing you when the message was read for your records.
You may add in users names in this section, or edit any saved entries. You can also use this as a ban list, denying the named member the ability to message you. Names entered in this section will appear in the drop down list when sending a new PM, allowing you to quickly choose the members name when sending a message.
You may rename, add or remove folders to store messages is, allowing you to organise your messages to your preference. You cannot remove 'Sent Items' or 'Inbox'.
Go to Inbox
Your inbox is where all new messages are sent to. Clicking on the message title will show you the message in a similar format to the board topic view. You can also delete or move messages from your inbox.
