    @Fahdi, It doesn’t have the capability to send an email to the inbox. If enough people ask for it then we will look into adding an option for that.

    Great Plugin.

    So looks like, the message will be sent to user specified inbox within wordpress, any tips/tricks so that the message will be delivered to user/recipient email?

  6. Hi guys,
    Another top plugin from you! @Dan above hit the nail on the head — I was looking for a way that I could leave private messages inside the website for my client, and voila! Keep up the great work guys!

    You could use the following to place a link to open the compose menu:

    <a menuid="compose" class="wpmessengermenu" href="#" rel="nofollow">Launch Compose Menu</a>

    Is there a possibility to prepare some link to put on page which opens Compose page with selected user?

    @Tim, at this stage the inbox can only be displayed in an overlay. This allows the messenger widget to be embedded anywhere without worrying about the width of the parent container.

    This looks great but is it possible to display the inbox etc within a page – i.e. without the inbox opening in a pop up window. The site that I have in mind will only be used by registered users.

    This plugin helped me a lot for the project that I was doing for my client. Thank you for sharing this plugin for sending private messages.
