When using PM's, I can't see how to reply to a PM?

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Private Messages

When reading an email in the inbox I have a purpley/pink reply button bottom right, just the same as there is in a thread post.

Emmm! interesting that, as I know of at least one other member who was having the same trouble.

But, yes you're quite right Mayfly.

I wonder why the reply button wasn't available yesterday?

Re: Private Messages

Ah! I see where the confusion lays. If the PM is fairly short - say less than three lines - the entire message can be shown in the message list without opening it. Therefore the reply button doesn't show.

Doh!!

It seems to me that in most other message windows where a message continues/overflows the window size there is a "more..." link on the bottom right. This usually opens the full message window, and in this case would include the reply button.

I would be helpful here too.
