The following error occurred:

Can somebody help me with this please?

Use Analyze Permissions in the ACP on the member who the PMs can't be sent to, as it sound like a problem with the "Receive new conversations" permission.

I found the 'Analyze Permissions' OK but it only allowed me to analyze forum material. I could not find "Receive new conversations' permission. Could you give me step by step instructions using > > > guidelines? Thank you.

Allows messages only from those on follow/friends and the sender is not on friends/follow?
Other member has disabled Conversations

How can a member disable 'Conversations'. If he can disable them can you tell me how and where he does it? I have no doubt he would prevent his friend from sending him a message.

I have asked the receiver member to send a PM to the complainant. And asked the complainant if he has EVER received a message from the receiver member.

The box is ticked OK.
  • Would not the link you supplied be for MY privacy?
  • The member in question would not be able to access this as it ACP (??)

I am gradually learning this thanks to your directions Nadaii. I found where to edit the User in question's privacy section. The the member's privacy
tick boxes were different to mine. It asked 'Initiate conversations with this user' this was unticked so I ticked it. Would that be right?

i believe so yes, you could try by seeing if you could mail that member with a non staff account (as i think staff can contact even those with it disabled)

I am hoping that worked. I found that the complainant had all the boxes ticked whereas the receiver member did not have any ticked. I ticked them all.
I really appreciate this, as I am learning more about these things as I go along. Thank you.

I will try this if what I have done doesn't work. For a non staff account I suppose I would have to register as a new member.
