    Question Can't Send Private Messages?

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by spiderneome, Jan 14, 2018.

    I've sent private messages recently but whenever I check my sent folder, nothing is there. How come?

    I could be wrong but I thought Xen foro forums don't allow conversations to be started by someone with less than 3 posts

    That could be one reason. Another could be a spam filter.

    ETA: Actually, I have an account with 0 posts that can start conversations without a hitch.
    And if either Xenforo or a spam filter prevented the OP from finding their messages then it would probably not let them send a message in the first place.

    What is a member with no posts doing sending PMs anyway? I do hope the spam filter is blocking those.

    Key word in OP: Messages, plural.

    Care to answer that, @spiderneome ?

    According to the Xen foro forums this is down to how admin set the site up - Admin can choose to limit PM access to no messages, or to messages to moderators only, for a post count/time of membership they choose - of course I have no idea what @Daniel chose all those years ago

    And be this the case, I've not received any PMs (conversations in Xenforo parlance) from the OP.

    To the OP, if it is that you're having difficulty with the site, let me know here in this thread.
