Hey I would love to be notifed by email when I have a PM.
I can't seem to find where in the control panel I can do this.
Any help is welcome.
Thanks,

Go to "Your Control Panel" (in a new window, so you can still read this), click on "Email Settings" and then make sure the last checkbox is checked "Send a confirmation email when I receive a new private message".

While you're there, make sure the first check box is checked, so you won't get spam from uninvited guests of the board that harvest email addresses. If there are any other members you *want* to have your real email address, you can send it to them in a PM. Don't give it away to _everyone_.

Thanks, but I actually don't have that box in my control panel under email settings.

These are my four options - nothing about getting notifications in my email.

Oh well.

Thanks for responding.

no. the very last thing asks me about how long I want a topic subscription to last.  Nothing about sending an email when I get a pm.

Ok Go into account options, Then go to the Change the way icon board looks, and then go to change skin to Standard Ikonboard Skin  remember to save changes
and then when you go to where we suggested above it should be there.
Then you can go back and change the board skin back to normal.... I hope that helps.

This is what it will say on that page:
