I believe that it is 10 in a Technical Forum. General Discussion messages don't count toward being able to pm.

Any chance of getting the New Member Probation Period Sticky updated with this information? Not a single mention of number of posts needed to be able to send/receive PM's.

Private messages - how do they work?

Newly created forum user accounts are not permitted to send Private Messages. This helps keep spammers and scammers in check.

There are a limited number of private messages you can store in your profile. All messages (Outbox and Inbox) count against the maximum messages you can have. Make sure to delete all the old messages on a regular basis (you can mass-delete) from both of your message boxes. At the top of JeepForum.com's homepage, it will state how many messages you currently have associated with your profile. You can manually count your total messages to verify that you have correct numbers.

Private messages also have a limited number of characters that you can use. Spaces and blank lines count against the maximum characters.

Full-access members also have the ability to hold many more messages in their PM box than regular members. Another benefit of becomming a full-access member!

Will do. Thanks for pointing that out.

We added the requirement back when that flood of PM spam was hitting the site. Worked to stop the bots
