45cat has introduced a new PM (private message) feature. The PM system allows members to contact each other. Every member has an inbox that can store 100 messages.

View your PMs by clicking the Private Message link in the top-right Options> menu, or on your My 45cat page.

To send a PM, go the the persons My 45cat page, and click Send a PM.

You don't have to use the PM system. If you edit your profile, you will find there is an option to disable PMs. This blocks sending and receiving messages.

You can opt to have PMs automatically forwarded to your email address. However your email address must first be verified. Do this by following the Edit Your Profile link.

Every member can set a "PM Policy". This is a message that is displayed when someone tries to send you a PM,eg "No PMs offering records for sale please."

The PM system is a basic message service, so we recommend that members use email for extended communication with each other.

The system checks whether you have new PMs when logging in, when you go to your My 45cat page, and of course when you view your list of PMs.

Please respect the PM usage guidelines:
Quote:
The PM system is designed to allow members on 45cat to contact each other. It is very simplified email type system, using member names instead of email addresses

Maximum message length is 1000 characters. For extended communication with another person, we recommend you swap email addresses, and use that instead.

The usual 45cat rules apply: treat other members with respect, no racist, homophobic or sexist messages, do not send anything unnecessarily offensive, do not spam.

You must abide by any PM policy that your recipient provides.

PM functionality can be withdrawn from members not following these guidelines.

I asked for an email to be sent to me when a private message is sent to me on 45cat. However this doesn't seem to happen now.

Just tested at it seems to be working fine. Perhaps your email provider is blocking 45cat for some reason. Try checking your spam folder.

Does the time stamp I see on a received PM indicate the local time I received it or the time the sender sent it (his time) or other??

No, it wasn't that one, Zab! TBH I didn't understand a word as it was in Thai. I could tell you about the links in the post, but if I did, I'd have to kill you :laugh:
PS - Klepsie beat me to the kill by seconds!
