How to Send a Private Message

A private message (or PM) is similar to an email. You can send and receive messages from anyone on the Community without exchanging any personal information.


To send a Private Message:


  1. Click on the screen name of the member you wish to contact.
  2. At the right rail of the member’s profile, in the “Contact” section, click on the “Send this user a private message” link.

  3. This will take you to your private messaging tool. Write an appropriate “Message Subject” and then write the main message in the “Message Body.”
  4. Like creating a post, you can change font, color, size of the text and the other utility buttons to enhance your message. When you are finished, click on “Send Message.”
    Your message is now sent.


If a member sends you a message, there will be a blue envelope icon in the upper right corner of the Community. To check your message box, click on the envelope icon.
