Private messaging fixed today

By sMoRTy71 ·
Based on everyone's feedback, we are going to be changing the private message functionality today.

From now on, the sender's address will be in the "From" field of the e-mail (so you can reply directly to them). Also, the subject line will read "A message from a TechRepublic member." Lastly, the copy of the message will be reduced to "A fellow TechRepublic member has sent you a private message."

Hopefully this will eliminate most of the problems you all have been experiencing with the PM feature.

That's perfect

by house In reply to Private messaging fixed t ...

I've replied to a peer-mail message a couple of times, only to get the obvious rejection from TR. It is a habit that I think we've all adopted and it is difficult to remember when responding to peer inquiries...

Using the member's email address in the sender's address field is perfect. :)

Now, your auto-response won't get hammered by dummies like me.
