WikiTree's Private Message system lets members receive email without revealing their email addresses.

How to Send Private Messages

To send a message, look for the "[send private message]" link on a member's profile. This forms generates an email to the recipient.

Privacy

The Private Message system keeps the recipient's email address private. It does not keep the sender's email address private.

When you send a message your email address will be visible to the recipient. They may choose to reply to you by email.

Carbon Copies

You will receive a copy via email of the Private Messages you send. The WikiTree system does not retain copies of Private Messages you send or receive.

30-Message Limit

You can only send 30 messages per day. Unfortunately, we needed to implement this limit for everyone after 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 Help:Daily Limits on Messages for more explanation.
