I looked pretty thoroughly, but messages don't seem to be showing up, even after sending a few tests. Is anyone else having this problem?

Thanks, and sorry if this is a repeat.

Welcome to MP. I am not sure why the message system has to be so difficult on this site. dorseyec

Me in the Buddha Cave at crumblewood a while ago.
Just worked fine for me. Showed-up less then a minute after testing it. I am on Gmail.

Maybe check to make sure you have the right email address in your account?

FWIW, there are some email servers that filter out email. That happened at work. Clevernamehere, a peek at your email address suggests you are not using one (edited out by request) of the common email sites. You may try getting a free account with gmail or hotmail and then asking a landlord to change your email address on your account. Andrew, yours (...edu) is less likely to be filtered.

Addendum: in an effort to try to figure this out, I'm sending both of you test messages through MP.com and my email account to see if one or both get blocked.

I've checked in the past by sending myself a PM.

That said, I just sent myself one and it has not come thru in 5 min, and it used to come through pretty much immediately.

Seems to be a continual problem in the forum pages where buyers PM for an item and never get a response from seller. several have gone to posting up a phone or other email for direct contact. Woodchuck ATC

How do you even access private messages??

I've looked where I thought was all over the place and don't see an inbox or anything anywhere? I cant tell if they are working or not because it's not intuitive as to where I am supposed to be looking? Any help appreciated!

PMs are emailed to the account you signed up under.
