If you go back to the email notification , you may find a message in that email

The person you PM'd may have chosen to reply by email and not PM

I nearly fell for it one , just saw a UKworkshop email and did not read it proper;y the first time :oops:

Steve,

I think it is as Blister said- if I click on email below your post, it sends you a message that looks like it is a PM, but it is not. It wont appear in your PM area.

Dependant upon the options selected in your profile you can opt for an e-mail notification for any PM's you have been sent via your PM button.

If however someone sends you an e-mail via your e-mail button then you will get an e-mail as Blister mentioned that looks at first glance very much like the PM notification due to the forum headings etc. that are presented just in case you are being spammed and provides a method of reporting back to UKW.

The Forum E-mail notification button has no connection with the PM function.
