Why do I get "You are not allowed to use the messenger feature on this board" error when I try to send a private message (pm)?
You're getting this because you have not yet posted in the message board or you are a guest. Only members (with 1 or more posts) can use the Private Message system.
I received the error "This message can not be sent because the recipient does not have permission to use the personal messenger. This personal message has not been sent." when trying to send a message to another member.

Although you are in Member status (1 or more posts) the person you are trying to send a message to is still in the Newbies catagory (no posts). Newbies do not have permission to use the Private Messages function until they have posted at least once. Try sending a message to them through Email. It is located also in their profile at the top of the Communicate section.
