    Currently when we send out messages it just says you have a new PM on the site, something like that. As the volume of messages is picking up.. users are getting annoyed with logging in only to find out they are not interested in the other users message.

    Can/should i start displaying the whole message in the users email like this:



    You have 1 new message on XYZ

    Hey $name,
    You have a new private message on the site:
    Hey, this is the body of the message, i was just contacting you to say hello.




    Is this illegal, stupid question sorry but i dont know about spam laws or anything. I think it would piss users off less if they just realized hey im not interested so i wont log in ill just ignore this person.......

    Will i lose money on adsense because users will log in less?


    I created option to batch emails but users never edit the preferences to make it wait every few days to send a message. Any pros and cons would be appreciated.... Thank you!

    It's not illegal, but it's obviously annoying since your customers are complaining.

    Give them an idea what the message is about: "you have a new message about $SUBJECT, would you like to read it now?"

    There are no subjects... the subject just gets displayed with first few words of body... did that just to make sending more enticing and faster.

    Excuse me, theyre not complaining but i know its just too much, getting 6 PM's in a day is too much.

    Do you not agree with displaying the ENTIRE message? Can you tell me why you wouldent just do that? Id like to hear your personal opinion, thank you.

    So you're getting 6 PM's but they're not complaining. Then what are they saying on those PM's?

    I think you should display the entire message, I personally find it useful when I read my BHW PMs through email when using my phone.

    I mean a user will sometimes get 6 PM's a day... sometimes its solicitation from others...

    The only con i would see is not making the $$ adsense clicks everytime they log in.. but i send out promotional weekly so i think it will stay relevant.. hmm
