There is no inworld message system from the website. If your friends are registered on the forums you can send them private messages here by clicking the envelope icon at the top of your screen next to your name (or from their forum profile).

Another option would be a chat client such as Radegast, which is a lightweight SL viewer with no graphics. http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Third_Party_Viewer_Directory

If one of your friends have IM`d you offline and you have received the message in your email, you can also reply to that.

Ditto that! This was exactly what I needed and here's why. I'm stuck away on a work laptop that I don't have admin priveleges over and I really wanted to just get a note and link to a friend while it was still Easter Sunday. It's been nagging me and I really couldn't leave to access another computer. With this viewer tip I was able to:

 

1- I could easily get to inworld IM without installing any program by running the non-installer .exe version of Radegast, eliminating the unpriveleged user limitation. Dude!

 

and *B*- After shooting off the IM in less time (including download) than it takes me to open SL, login, connect, res and wait for the barrage of graphic notes and chat alerts to send an IM....I realized I had full access to my inventory and objects which makes for verrry easy spring cleaning of my hoarding pile. This was the mega bonus of this solution. I always have trouble with organizing in SL viewer and this interface is really simple (just like me!) I can open up a huge inventory list and zip through with delete and down arrow(to skip/save) and really get something done. I really have way too many women's clothes and accessories for a healthy male avatar. Sad but true.

 

Thanks again, Peewee!
