How to reply to a PM when...

they don't receive pm's ?

Traxless sent me a pm asking for some info,
I did some research and typed out a reply and when I hit send it said something to the effect, he cannot receive PM's ?!?

Why does the forum let him SEND PM's if he can't receive responses ? that's silly !

Any way to get some info to him if I can't find the thread he was talking about?
(I did add it as a profile comment, but he may not know it's there nor see it !)

Hate for another user to think I just ignored him !!!

Each member selects whether to receive pm's or not. I suggest you try again.

Retrying won't help - I can't respond to him to tell him I can't respond

Just saying it seems logical that you should consider not allowing someone to SEND one if they can't receive one.

As I said above, each member decides how they wish to send and receive pm's. If you don't care to try again , move on.

jeeze thanks for the curt response Cliff !
My software customers are usually responded to differently

Trying again if it's still turned off does nothing
just trying to give the software people a way to improve the site

Sorry you feel my response was " curt". I never said the other members pm's we returned off. I suggested you try again , however you choose not to, so I suggested you move on.

Maybe the sender doesn't know his PM function is turned off. Not really my business , but you could post a short message, to that effect, to him in the public forum.

I just sent a pm to Traxless and it went through. All members have the option to "ignore " other members. This would prevent a pm from going through ( I believe ) . This sometimes is done in error , however sometimes it's not.

Cliff is correct in that the member does not have have incoming PMs turned off.

hmmm... see below... just tried it since his question was to me...

as a software developer,
sometimes the user is correct (depending on the scenario)

so maybe it's not the issue I brought up,
but another one,
might be it triggers the wrong error message ? thanks !
