    This was part of a system upgrade and was done in response to spam messages being sent via email.

    That must have changed in a matter of a day or two. I swear I seen them just the other day.

    Any plans to allow us to get email notification for PM's? I know I preferred emailing people because they got back to me much quicker using email... I definitely understand needs to stop spam though!

    The spam thing was why I never put down my email here in the first place. But I dont agree that PM's can be hard to notice unless you are really looking for them. I have gone weeks before I have noticed some of mine.

    Thanks....it's good to know what happened. I very rarely used the email option. I think as far as not noticing your pm's, it's just a matter of getting in the habit of checking for them.

    [​IMG] Was spam being sent from members to members? How odd - well thankfully they never "got" me!
