    Sorry, but I looked everywhere for the answer ...I also wasn't sure where to post this question.

    Thanks! :)

    It might depend n which device you are using but for me on a computer I go to the "Inbox" button top right and click on it. Then I hit the "start a conversation" tab.

    Hi :frow

    Private messages are now called conversation’s. You can start one by clicking on your inbox and using the “start a new conversation” type their username in.

    Thanks to everyone for their reply. I have never tried to pm someone before.
    I like the method of selecting the person's name first so I am sure he is the one getting it.
    I am putting up an electric fence and wanted to ask Howard E a question.
    Thanks soooooo much!
