Emailing Other Members - Philip1231 - 05-18-2020

I can PM other members, but when I click on their profile and choose the option to send them an email, I get error message: something to the effect that I don't have permission?

Whats up?

When I click on your profile I don't even see an e-mail option. Maybe it's the way the users have their profiles set up.

In Account Settings, the 2nd option is to:

"Hide email address from other members"

OK, changed my settings to my email is visible. Now I get this message:

sent you a test email as a step towards figuring this out.

It looks like there are 2 configuration options related to emails.

One allows admin to send you email.

The other one hides one's email from other members.

It appears that moderators can send emails if admin are allowed to do so.

As far as I can tell, choosing not to hide one's email address, results inĀ an option to send email next to the option to send a PM.

It appears that the send-email link does not work for members even when it is visible.

We'll have to do some homework to figure this out.

Thanks for the help,
Ivan
