Hi guys, I'm new to this forum and tried to send a private message, but for some reason I don't have this facility? I'm registered, signed in and checked the User Control Panel.

Any ideas?

Cheers, Phil

    Okay, that would make sense. How many post do I need to send?

    Don't worry, I'll not send loads of random rubbish!

    Hi there, I'm new too - I have a reply I need to make to another user but can't because I'm new - I've RTFM'd and can't find any reference - please could someone point me in the general direction of how to enable me to respond?

    Cheers!

    Right, so I need to send 10 replies, then I should be able to PM.

    Very eloquently put :lol:

    They stay in the outbox until the person reads it, it's a bit different from email, better really as you know when your message is read because it goes from outbox to sent :)
