RR’s will be opened here as soon as the hosts can do it.
First of all, the only dumb questions are the ones one doesn’t ask
If you want to send a message to someone, you have two options:
- Click on their username in a topic (marked with red), and then click “ message” (marked with blue), as shown here:
- Go to your user icon in the top, right corner > Your username > messages > New Message.
@BA_Yeats - Also note that you’ll have to use the users original PC username to message. In the old forum we could change our usernames, but here, we must use our originally chosen “official” Postcrossing name.
ok thank you! I will make myself familiar with it.
3 posts were split to a new topic: Bookmarks and flags
So are there folders in the new message system?
Yes, there are. Click your avatar in the top, right corner > Click your username > messages. There you’ll find “inbox”, “sent” and “archive”.
No custom folders
Oh that’s a drag. That’s how I tracked what was due in and out.
Such a pity we can’t save to favorites anymore!
You can bookmark your favourite Topics - to my mind that makes no difference.
Where are all my emails? They are all gone and I have 0 emails in my inbox. Is there a folder where all old emais went to?
All your u2u’s are on the same place as before - in the old forum
If you want them safe, you can send them to your email account.
Or you can copy them and send them here to yourself.
Thanks, Bille, I didn’t know the old forum is still accessible. Everything is totally new here and takes time to figure things out.
There are links on the “hamburger” menu that will lead you to a list of topics you’re currently Tracking or Watching.
Is almost like favorites
I’ve written a little guide about bookmarks and notifications here: Bookmarks and Notification levels
I hope it helps! Let me know if you still have questions about them after reading it – I’m happy to update it so that it is clear and comprehensive.
If I mark it as a bookmark, is there a list with bookmarks, like a list with favorites? I can’t find it?
Finding the bookmarks:
- click on your avatar and than on and you see some of them
- click on the little arrow and you see all
Is there any quick way to save our U2U messages from the old forum, or must the messages be sent one by one? I would like to save my U2U messages, but don’t know how to do it.
Yes, you have to send one by one to your Mailaccount.
I haven’t do that already, but I can’t find a possibility to send them all together.
