Several folks have asked "how" the private message feature works on the forum board.
After you have logged in on the Board Index page, you wil see a User Control Panel. That is where you go to use the private message feature or to email another member directly. Your private message will appear to stay in your outbox, even though you have hit send, until the receiving party replies to you. This is a way for you to check and see if your message has been read. If it is still sitting in the outbox, chances are the person it was intended for has not logged in to check their messages. You can also checkmark a setting to be notified via your email when a private message has arrived for you.
