How do I send a Personal Message ? (SOLVED)
« on: June 19, 2014, 02:51:52 pm »
This might be silly.

On this forum, I received a personal message.  I replied to it, but I have no idea whether or not it was sent/received because there seems to be no record of my response.

I've now received a 2nd personal message, but I've no idea how to respond so that I can follow the conversation.

I'm not in the least techno-savvy, so please into account when you formulate your reply.

Sincerley
Tony

Hi TonyB, how's it going?  Look at the maroon bar under the Peppermint logo at the top of the page.  You will see Members in white letters,  This opens up a directory of us "lucky Pepperminters"  8).  Locate the person you wish to contact using the choices from the drop down menu.   Click on the View the Memberlist, (Search For Members is self explanitory).  Find the Pepperminter you are looking for in the Username column.  Click on the name and a new window will open.   You will see, ACTIONS in white letters in the lower small maroon bar.  Under that is a link to, Send personal message.  Remember to check the, Save a copy in my outbox box that is located under the bottom left corner of the large text box.  This is for your own records if you so desire.  You can also reply directly to sender by clicking the,Return or Quote buttons in your received message.  I hope this helps.  Have fun ;)!!

Thanks Andy. Yes, that's what I was doing.
But it seems I've been using Gmail too long, as I expected the messages & replies to be neatly laid out in a list, which they arent't.
Thanks for taking the trouble to reply.
Cheers
Tony
