Default Private Messages.

If I send a private message to some one via the links on this forum, does it go to their private email account for their eyes only, or can other people view it?

Cheers.

PM's only go to the person and are not visible to the rest of the forum. Perhaps with the exception of Admin.

The recipient gets a message sent to their registered email address telling them they have a PM. Confusingly, this email also contains the contents of the PM, so people often reply to the email rather than go to the forum to read the PM (the email tells them not to, but it's easily missed). Replying to the email will not work - you have to reply on the forum's PM system.

It is done this way so no one gets to see the other person's private email address - all activity is relayed through the forum with neither person's email address appearing anywhere.

Thank you Marty and Bob.
Just in case you are a little curious, it is to give one of the FADU members a little advice on security.
