New member/Can't Read a PM I've Benn Sent

Post by Dave G South West »

Hi all,


I only joined yesterday and as such my PM service is not yet enabled - but a member has kindly replied to my post with a PM that the forum has automatically emailed me about.

Neither the link embedded in the email or going the usual way with phb forums to access PMs allows me to see said PM.

Is there anyway I could see the PM, maybe have it forwarded on to me as an email?

Or do I simply have to be patient?


Thanks,


Dave

I would be suspicious about the PM, simply because the regulars would post an answer in the forum, it is not what PM's are for.

And in any case questions and answers benefit all our members.

Can't be done BA, it will remain a mystery for another 8 posts :-P

Thanks guys, guess I'd better start posting some waffle - it did seem a little odd at first it being sent as PM and not on the forum proper, but I found the users' details and have spoken to him via email and he certainly seems kosher and has been very helpful.

Will do - which I should have thought about before I just bumped said thread.

Just do what everyone else does and put some smiley faces in the jokes forum :wink:
As always help on here is free, however if you think you have saved a decent sum of money why not click the link to find out about the charity we're currently supporting? A couple of quid makes a real difference.

If I were to venture into the jokes forum you'd find a lot more than just smilies....! And you'd soon tire of my sense of humour....!
