    ‘Age’d Parent’ - I sent you a PM, please phone me if you want to respond.

    (A few times I’ve seen forum members give someone a ‘nudge’ to get them to look at their PMs because, if you’re not expecting one, you may not bother to check. Should we have a thread (i.e. this one!) to give other members a ‘heads up’ if you’ve sent them a PM they might not know is there ?)

    On the whole I get an email to say I have a message, and then it shows up there as a notification.

    If you go to your Profile - Settings - Contact Details, there is a box, "Receive email when a new conversation message is received", that needs to be ticked for that system to engage. I'm not sure if it would be ticked as a default, though.

    What does placing an '@' in front of somebody's cyber moniker enable you to do ? Does it enable you to send a message directly to their email ?

    It sends them a notification that you have tagged them in a post. In other words that you are trying to attract their attention.

    You should get one now, @Staffordballs, as a result of me doing it here.
