How do I send and receive messages to friends on the SL website?

Question

  • 0

If you are talking about sending and receiving messages on the website to/from inworld,  you can't.  If the person uses these forums, you can send them a private message by clicking on the envelope next to your name at the top of the page.

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.

Thanks Cinna, that helps too. Now what if I have nothing in my inbox but I want to initiate compose a new message. How do I get to the message composition feature without seeing that envelope indicating incoming mail? Anyone? tia....

You can use search with the "users" as the category to find the forum profile of anyone registered here and on the right of their profile page. above the buttons for add as a friend or block, there is a link to "send a message".

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!
