Sending Private Messages
WikiTree's Private Message system lets members receive e-mail without revealing their e-mail addresses.
To send a message, look for the "[send private message]" link on a member's profile. This forms generates an e-mail to the recipient.
The Private Message system keeps the recipient's e-mail address private. It does not keep the sender's e-mail address private.
When you send a message your e-mail address will be visible to the recipient. They may choose to reply to you by e-mail.
You will receive a copy via e-mail of the Private Messages you send. The WikiTree system does not retain copies of Private Messages you send or receive.
You can only send 30 messages per day. Unfortunately, we needed to implement this limit for everyone after some problems with spammers.
If a message was sent successfully, you will see the "Message Sent" page after submitting the form, and you will receive a carbon copy.
If you try to send a 31st message, you will see a yellow status message at the top of the form when you submit it.
See daily limits on messages for more explanation.
