private messages vs emails

Postby SeekerNo1000003 » Tue Jan 21, 2014 5:16 pm

Hi,
Can someone kindly clarify what is the difference between sending an email versus a private message?
Are emails not private? ;) Or are there levels of privacy?
Thanks!

Private messages (PM's) go only to your inbox on DW. Emails go to your home email or the email address you gave when you joined DW.

I just want to point out that your email addresses aren't shared with anyone. When someone "emails" you the email comes from Dharmawheel, not directly from the user.... if that makes sense :shrug:

Gassho,

Yes, it all make sense. Also, I just discovered that there is a text in the email itself explaining how this works. Thank you for the clarification.
