Wow quite the controversy I caused here hehe. Yes - basically, I would love it if the forum sent me an email when I received a PM. I don't make the habit of checking SP on a daily basis and sometimes miss PM's. Additionally, I've noticed that PM's I've sent have gone days and days without response for the same reason (according to the member I sent the message to). If its not possible to do, no problem, was just hoping it would be. It seems that parsing code from a newer version of PHP BB would be feasible, or even an upgrade could work. I've never upgraded a forum so I assume it all depends on if the databases are structured the same way. Plus they would have to re-position the advertisement placements, etc. Too much hassle I guess.
