RE: E-mailing members from posts, instead of Msgs.
If I'm not mistaken, to send another MLS member an eMail as was done in the old Snitz forum software, ceased to exist in Jan. 2008 when we switched to the new forum software.
With the advent of the new forum software the use of the 'Send Message' link found in the 'Author' column on each topic page where the member's information that's posting that reply is found.[*] Has always resulted in sending that member a PM (Private Message).[*] Then depending on each member's configuration of the...[*] 'Notify me via Email:' setting (i.e. checked/enabled or not checked/disabled)[*] Which is located in the 'Notifications' section of the 'My Settings'.[/list][/list][*] Upon receipt of a PM or Friendship request[*] Either an eMail to that member 'would' or 'would not' be generated and sent to the member's eMail registered with MLS.[/list][/list]So the only thing that has taken place, was the default settings of some of the user configuration settings got automatically changed during the last forum software update.
Just like sometimes when you get and apply a software update/upgrade on your local system, parts of the program may change in the way they operate, your personal configuration settings get set back to their default values, or maybe you start having problems with your browser while surfing the Internet. While this may be an inconvenience, it is not something unusual in the software world.
