Windows 7: Message

Heya guys

How do I message people from their profiles?
I've seen a person or 2 who might be able to help me with a computer problem that I'm having - but can't see any way to message them from their profile? Am I just being stupid?

Thanks for your help!

Really, you are better to create a thread relating to your problem as you'll find some people don't take kindly to being PM'd on these matters.

It's why we've got the forums and it's the forums where you'll get the most help.

Right I appreciate that and won't message until it gets really desperate!
I still can't see the post message bit on people's profiles though :S
Where is it next to?

If you click on the "members name" (below their Avatar) you should have the options below. But have you got your "Control panel" setup to send and receive private messages ? Also as your a new member maybe you have to be around a bit before this option is available ... but I stand corrected on this matter

VM (Visitor Message) reply box is right on the persons profile page -


But it might not show up right away for new members like Pooman UK said due to anti spammer measures. Might have to post a certain amount or be a member a certain amount of days before it's available to you. Not sure on the required amount though.
