    Sorry for the lame question -- how do I actually Reply to a visitor message? I don't see any obvious Reply button in that dialog window. Do I need to go to the other user's visitor message window and just post something there?

    Thanks.

    You can either do that or post the reply on your visitor page as a new comment. If you want the messages to remain on one page for the sake of continuity.

    You can click on the view conversation button and reply from there. This also brings up all posts exchanged between the two members in chronological order.

    Posting on the other person's profile page will (I think) send them a notification that you have responded. Posting on your own profile page would not do that.

    I am guessing the "view conversation" option would also cause a notification.

    Oooh, it appears that Redbelly is right, he messaged me by using "view conversation" and I got a notification and was able to see the message.

    I knew you could view the conversation, but I din't know it allowed you to converse.

    And that's why you are writing up the forum hand book.

    There is no chat this weekend, so maybe we can get it finished.

    oh, dear. Well, I hope it's the latter. I miss chat!

    Well there can be lots of good reasons.

    I notice that you can also set up a group chat in googlemail.
