Tech Support (Parent and Student Access)/HOW TO: Turn on PMs
Private messages are turned off/on in your User Control Panel. You can quickly tell if yours are turned off by looking under any post you've made: do you see a PM button there?

Turning them back on is easy:

  1. Go to your UserCP
  2. Click "Edit Options"
  3. Check the box by "Receive private messages from other users."
  4. Click "Update Options" at the bottom of the page to save (not shown).

Actually, teens should have them turned off. Interesting, were you able to turn yours on? You shouldn't be. :)

Actually, now that I try, I can't turn them on. Thanks for explaining why though! That makes sense.[cheesy grin]

I turned my PMs on a long time ago, and I have been able to receive and send. But the last two messages I got a e-mail notification, but nothing in my inbox here. Any ideas?

I emailed you to let you know that I fb'ed you. :)
When I get emails through AO, I simply get the email in my regular email inbox.

Is there a way to reach a user who sent me a private message but when I tried to respond received this message “USERNAME has private messaging disabled.”

(Just in case you see this -you asked for Buckley and Beesly books.)
