Heads Up: How to spot a Private message (PM)!

(Test account) #1

Private messages:

  • Are NOT visible to the public.

If you are using the Jag-lovers site to forward messages to your personal email, then the subject lint for the message in this example would be: [Jag-lovers Forums] [PM] Test of PRIVATE Messaging.

If you are in the web interface, look for the envelope symbol.

If you are using email look for [Jag-lovers Forums] [PM]… in the subject line.
