Rocksor created the topic: Notification of Private Message in Inbox

On the old forum, we were able to see if we had a PM in the inbox while perusing through the forum. Lately, I've been guilty of quite a few times of not replying to people on PMs for days even though I was on the forum because I had no idea that someone had sent me a PM. I'm also not very good at checking email either. There was no need to click on Private Messages to just check if you had once sitting there.

Is there a way that we canget a notification that we have a PM in the inbox while reading the forum?

you should get an email when a new message arrives - check under your profile -> preferences -> email and notifications -

Yes, mole is correct, the new software that we installed a few months ago allows you to choose whether you want to receive notifications or not. I receive a notification when anyone send me a private message, which is obviously very helpful as I don't often check to see if I have any messages, just forget most of the time.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

I haven't been getting an email when I get new PMs in the last month. I just went in today to look at that, and it looked ok.
