Hi Paul, I've just seen the private message that you sent me last week ... and that is the point of this message (!!) i.e. I only just saw your message !! Is it possible ( if I should RTFM then please say so ! ) for use to receive "real" emails when someone sends us a private message on the forum ? If that is not possible ... is it possible for us to be shown a "in your face" dialog when we log onto the forum telling us that we have unread messages ? Cheers, Chris.
