clicking on the
icon. Or users can send private messages by clicking on the
"Address Book" link on
the navigational bar at the top of the screen.
Private messages are sent to a user's inbox in the PalletBoard system and

receive correspondence without having to give out his e-mail address.

Registered users can also monitor posts to see when updates are made by
subscribing to a thread. You will be notified via e-mail when messages are
added. This allows you to easily monitor a discussion thread of interest.
Click on the "My Subscription" link on the navigation bar at the top of the
screen or click on the "Subscribe"
icon just above a particular message.
Registered users can change their settings by clicking on the
"My Profile" link
