Default Gentle reminder: Do not respond to email notifications about a Private Message

Hi folks,

I get several of these a month. Someone gets an email notification that they have a Private Message waiting for them in our forum.

There is a reason that the message says "DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL!" in capital letters in that email when you get an email notification that you have a private message in the forum.

It is because if you do reply to it, it does not go to your intended recipient. It gets sent to me, the admin.



So, if you get an email notification, it is merely telling you that you have a private message IN the forum and you must log into the forum to respond to it.

I won't mention any names as I'm just trying to help you folks out here.


Best regards,

So this means that when echo and I PM back and forth about what a tyrannical jackass the forum owner is, you've been reading it? Oh NO! I guess we'll start opening the PM's on the forum itself...

Joe, is there a way you can set the notification message to not include the PM text? If it's not there, then you must go to the forum to read it.

Of course, I like to have it, but it's not that big of a deal for me. Others may feel differently.

And of course, the entire intent of the system is to keep your personal e-mail address hidden from the person you are trying to communicate with. If you reply, and it actually went to them, the system would be worthless. Share your data as you see fit - but cautiously. There are a couple here that have mine, but not many.

If I had it, I would make it public! I'd share it with everyone!

Oh, never mind. I guess I wouldn't.

I have it but I'm not in a sharing mood.

I am in the yellow pages. Hardly worth trying to hide my email address.
I do not expect everyone to disclose all, but I avoid people who will not state who they are. IMHO, internet anonymity breeds incivility.
