I don't understand that either right now because people can not post PM's until they are registered users.
(COPPA) Users Awaiting Moderation
Unregistered / Not Logged In
Users Awaiting Email Confirmation
All have Maximum Stored Messages: 50
This does not seem right to me, as it states "If you set this to 0 users from this usergroup will not be able to use private messaging."
It seems this might be our issue, but I'd rather get verification, Rick.
These three groups have the option to send PM to off. So they should not be able to send a PM. I will have to created another account and have Bruce not approve it and see if I will be able to send a PM. I am busy right now and getting ready to head out. I will do it when later. If one of you two want to try it, your more then welcome.
Unapproved member brspammerdad may have sent you two PMs. They appeared to send fine, but when he looked in his PM outbox, it was empty.
I changed the "Users Awaiting Email Confirmation" group to 0 and brspammerdad cannot send any PMs, in fact the option is removed from all menus.
There is still an issue with email confirmation, brspammerdad never got an email from the site. He did, however, misspell his email address on the first try.
EDIT: email corrected, email came quickly. lol

Once I confirmed email, I was one again able to send PMs without being approved. Setting the Max to 0 again hid the PM menu altogether.
I think we'll have to leave these set to 0 until we upgrade, Rick.
I set the unregistered/Not Logged in to 0 as well, even though I tried and cannot send PMs when not logged in.
