Hi Guys.Wondering if it is possible, with this software,to have some better method, of alerting me,when I get a private message.I miss the top notification, all the time,as my time is mostly spent,on the bottom areas,of the threads,reading last posts etc.Thanks.:)
Blind as a Bat,to boot.LOL

We've had instant PM notification from square one Doug.
To enable yours go into your User Control Panel and under Settings and Options click Edit Options.

Look under the Header; Messaging and Notification

Under Private Messages tick; "Show New Private Message Notification Pop-up"

I could enable it in the ACP Dougie for everyone but some people prefer not to receive Private Messages at all.
