Welcome.

Your email or other members are available just by clicking on your call name. So if it is that important ie. buying, selling or info. it can be sent by email.

I understand that, but what I would like is for when private messages are posted to me on Calguns to get an email alert sent to my regular email address. If that feature is just not available so be it, but I find it to be a vexing problem when I am trying to sell something and messages pile up because I am not constantly monitoring my PM's here. It can also be a problem when at work where Calguns is not accessible there so it is impossible for me to monitor it (though I can check my email).

This feature is available on several other forums I belong to by the way.
