PM's

How do you know when you get a private message? I keep seeing 3 private messages, but then I need to download something? kinda new to this site. but it almost looks like spam. If someone was to send a private message, will it just go to my email ? or ???? Please help me understand

You will get an email notifying you of a new PM.

To read your PM's, go online and reply if you desire.

You cannot reply via the email notification.

I do not get E-mails since the stupid computer thinks my E-mail is invalid (it is not, you have my lifetime e-mail reflector address.. It's only good till my membership in a faternal orgination expieres, but, when it expires... so do I (Life membership).

to the O/P
Click on the words "Private Messages" just to the left of the number and it will take you to the proper page. Once you are finished if you DELETE the message (Sorry, too many procedures for that in my mind to tell how to do it here but it's obvious when on the page) the count will drop to 2,1,zero.

You're not getting email notifications because you have that option set to "No" in your profile.

To change that option,
click on User CP
click on Edit Options
check the box labeled "Receive Email Notification of New Private Messages"
click on Save Changes at the bottom.

I have been getting what you discribed.
I went to "User CP" and don't have any new PMs.

You don't have to go to USER CP to read PM's. (USER CP is short for User Control Panel and that is where you can set your preferences for notifications, etc.)

Look in the upper right-hand corner of the forum page... Click on the "Private Messages" and they will display if you have them.

It has also been reported that the AdChoice.Ads by Google box (if you don't have an AdBlocker) at the top of every page, has a "You have 3 private messages" ad that displays from time to time.

Ignore it. That's not us.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I bet it looks like the image below, right?

If so, it's an Advertisement for the Best Mail InboxAce toolbar.

Don't fall for it ...unless you like that kind of stuff on your computer/browser

Thanks for that! I have an ad blocker so I had no idea what that looked like. I imagine that is exactly what others are seeing.

That's what it looks like except what I saw today it said 2. Maybe they thought I would fall for 2.

Yep. It's an ad, not us.
