  • Don't reply to emails notifying you of Forum Private Messages

    Long-time Forum members already know this, but for the benefit of the many new folks who have joined recently - please do not use your e-mail program to reply to notifications about Private Messages received on the Forum. Every week I receive messages from members asking why Private Messages don't work, and the explanation 99% of the time is that they've replied to the notification email - which does not go to the to the message sender!

    By default, members are notified via e-mail when a new PM is received. It will read like so:

    ´╗┐Dear (Member),

    (Another Member) has sent you a private message. You can view the full message at:
    https://forum.studebakerdriversclub....ge/list/####/

    Here is a preview (may be truncated):
    Hello, I'm interested in your item for sale. Can you deliver?

    All the best,
    Studebaker Drivers Club Forum
    DO NOT EMAIL A REPLY TO THIS NOTIFICATION! It will disappear into the void, and your intended recipient will never read what you wrote.

    You MUST log into the Forum to reply to PMs!

    Studebakerly,
