Post Private Message (PM) system
The private Message (PM) system here at the Forum usually has a Pop-Up message (when I log on) that tells me when I have a New Message. This Pop-Up stopped appearing sometime in the past and I could not figure out why. I discussed this off-line with Susan and she, correctly, commented that I must have had Pop-Ups blocked. However, I was still puzzled since the normal message that told me each time that a Pop-Up was blocked did not appear either.

Without this Pop-Up, I was getting PMs without realizing it and therefore was slow, or not responding to a message at all. If anyone got a slow response from me or no response at all, I apologize.

I finally, belatedly, figured out that I had to allow Pop-Ups but only at the Forum webpage. This allows the Pop-Up informing me of a new PM without disabling the Pop-Up protection for the rest of the Internet sites.

For those that use Windows XP (Service Pack II),
click on Tools,
select Pop-Up Blocker
select Pop-Up Blocker Settings
in the box "address of website to allow:" type
forum.sailingnavies.com
click ADD

.....maybe I've got something similar, Don; I got notification of a PM but there was nothing there, so I don't know what that was about.

Apologies to whomever the person was.....

Sounds a bit different Mary, but maybe there is a similar root cause. Maybe the person waiting a response will see this and resend to you.
