My thanks to you guys for making private messages possible. However, how do you know when there's one waiting for you

Next to the "Private Messages" entry in the menu, the number of unread messages is shown in red (xx New). You should have one now.
Please make sure you all clear out your inboxes and outboxes. Ten messages is your limit. That's it. We're not a dating agency.

Thanks Phil I found it.
Again forgive my PC stupidity

And finally figured out how to get rid of the red message. Not only do you have to delete the private message to which you just replied, but you must then return to and refresh the home page

PS: For the most part, love your new editing capability in the public domain
But I still haven't figured out how and where to find my own private reply, to check it and see if it was transmitted ok or needs editing, etc; because when I Send it, it disappears

Like an email, Dale you can't edit it once it's gone. You have an outbox where you can store copies, but they are just that, copies. You have an option in the editing window to save the message to your outbox.

Thanks Phil--guess I'm getting to be a fussbudget in my old age. By the way, you have a message about circumventing one of Gates' most persistent glitches

Dale,
What is going on? Something is very fishy. You clearly have a box somewhere. Phoney name on this list? There is no msg box annotated on your membership list. Did you remove it?? What prompted this quiery, was the question, I have, about why so many members don't choose to have boxes, Why you don't or Why you removed it. What am I missing here about Why no casual members have msg boxes.??

Don't know

Something is very fishy. You clearly have a box somewhere.

Don't remember seeing one

Phoney name on this list?

Not as far as I know.

There is no msg box annotated on your membership list.

What's the membership list and where would I find it

Did you remove it??

Not unless I somehow did it accidentally

What prompted this quiery, was the question, I have, about why so many members don't choose to have boxes,

I don't remember being asked if I wanted one

Why you don't or Why you removed it. What am I missing here about Why no casual members have msg boxes.??

Maybe someone else will be of more help
