Private Messages & E-Mail

Hi Gretchen and Michelle!

While I adore the new board format, as it has many advantages, I feel that there are two problems:

1. E-Mail-- in our personal profile we have to check whether or not we want others to have access to our e-mail. However, there is still no e-mail link to just conventionally e-mail someone...just this private message deal. I for one, dislike using the private message function b/c it requires more steps to access than just e-mailing someone conventionally. Hence, I do not e-mail (ir private message) my fellow curlyheads as often anymore. PLEASE reconsider not allowing us to have a direct e-mail link....I REALLY miss having this function at my finger-tips.

Private Messages: While I dislike this function entirely for communication purposes, one of the things that really bothers me about it is that fact that once youread a message it "dissapears"-- even without checking the delete box. Maybe this can be fixed?

Thanks for listening! I hope that you will take my suggestions into consideration!

    Another thing with the private message is once you write one and send it, it's gone. So if the person you wrote to sends you an email down the road, I most likely won't remember what I've said before. Is there a way to make it an option for the messages you send this way to save it to a sent folder under your personal message box like you can with email? Thanks!! icon_smile.gif

    I agree; those same issues bother me. I think we're stuck with them, however, with this new software. But I'll poke around and see what I can find.

    Thanks for letting us know.

    Ever since the sports thread wars I have sensed a special connection between [edit] & Wile. Like the connection oil has to water. I almost can't speak of it. Wait....my eyes are misting. ~asq

    I found a little option I'd previously missed. Sorry to make y'all suffer so long.

    I don't think there's a way to change the way PMing works, however.
