Private Messaging (PM)

Private Messaging (PM) is RunRyder's internal messaging service. PMs can only be sent to registered RunRyder members. You can include Post Tags, smilies and images in private messages.

If you ever receive Spam via Private Messaging please report it to RunRyder by clicking the Report Spam link located below every private message.
Email Reply to PM

RR offers the feature of replying back to PM notifications off site via your email client. When replying to PMs using your email client make sure the To: email address is NOT apache@rc.runryder.com. If it is you will receive a PM bounce message.

The correct Reply To email address would look something like the following:

pm.14133494.404804@rc.runryder.com

For the most part, email clients get the Reply To address correctly without intervention. Just type your reply and hit send. A very productive feature.
Send a PM

You can send a Private Message (PM) in one of three ways:
  • Click the PM link at the top of a member's profile.
  • Click the PM link below a member's post.
  • Go to myHOME, Private Messaging, and click the Create New PM link.
Your sent PM's are save in your sent folder.
PM Folders

By default, there are three folders in your Private Messaging area:
  • Inbox
The Inbox folder contains any new messages you receive.
  • Sent
The Sent folder contains your complete PM conversation including date and time. Your PM replies are automatically saved to the sent folder with the original moved to trash. This process is done to avoid redundant PMs in your Inbox and Sent folders. If the replied to PM resides in a folder other than the Inbox, the saved copy will stay in the same folder as the replied to PM.
  • Trash
PMs located in the Trash folder are automatically deleted after thirty days.

The goal is an empty Inbox and a tidy Sent folder.

You can create additional folders for your messages by clicking the Manage PM Folders button at the bottom of your Private Messaging. Each folder has a set of message controls which allows you to select messages, then either move them to one of your custom folders or delete them completely. You have the ability to forward multiple messages from a folder to an individual or to multiple members.

**RunRyder PMs are automatically deleted after three years. If you wish to keep something permanently, please save a copy to your personal computer.
Missing Inbox PMs and Save Copy

Your PM replies are automatically saved to the sent folder with the original moved to trash. This process is done to avoid redundant PMs in your Inbox and Sent folders. The Sent folder contains your complete PM conversation including date and time.

**RunRyder PMs are automatically deleted after three years. If you wish to keep something permanently, please save a copy to your personal computer.
PM Your Buddies

Go to your Private Messaging area and at the bottom of the screen click the PM Buddies link. Then select which buddies you would like to receive your PM.
Number Signifies PM Activity with Member

The number to the right of a member's name signifies the number of private messages you have exchanged with that member. Clicking on the number will display all PM conversations with that member.
PM Limits

RunRyder has created a suggested PM limit. Once you reach the 10,000,000 byte suggested limit, you will receive a screen warning (similar to below). The notice will remain at the top of every RunRyder page until you reduce your PMs below 10,000,000 bytes.

At the bottom of your Private Messaging screen you can see how many bytes your PMs take up
(myPM-Qty=65,535 myPM-Bytes=123,456,789). This useful information can help you stay below the suggested 10mb limit.
Message Tracking

When sending a private message, message tracking is automatic.

The Unread message section shows all messages that are unread by their recipient. The time of the last activity of the message recipient is also shown (Last Online 03-09-2007 12:33 PM). Messages in this section can be cancelled if you decide that their contents are no longer relevant. If you cancel a message the recipient will no longer see the message, but instead will see: This message has been cancelled by its sender iluvflyn. You should delete it from your Inbox.

Cancelled messages can also be restored to active status by selecting the cancelled message and clicking the Restore button. You cannot Restore a message if the recipient permanently deletes the message.

The Read message section shows all messages that have been read by their recipient. The time the message was read is also shown.

To end the tracking on any message, select the message and click the End Tracking button.
Messages Missing from Tracking Lists

Tracking is stored with the sent PM.

If the recipient permanently deletes the PM, it will automatically be removed from your Unread and Read tracking folders.
Cancel a Sent PM

If you cancel a sent message the recipient will no longer be able to see the message.

Instead the recipient will see: This message has been cancelled by its sender iluvflyn. You should delete it from your Inbox.

Cancelled messages can be restored to active status by selecting the cancelled message and clicking the Restore button. You cannot use Restore if the recipient has permanently deleted the message.
