Send email to.


Hi:

Clicking the poster's name one can see a number of options. I've just clicked 'Send email to foo', wrote the text and sent it. Now I want to see how it is seen by the would-be reader. As when I send a regular post and afterwards I can read it myself and see its format and how it looks. Can I do this? Thanks in advance.

This is not possible and is not a feature we plan on adding to LQ. As all email sent from LQ, the email is sent in plain text with no formatting.

Oh yes. I have seen that. I think 'Send email to' is more "private" than 'Send a private message to'. Well, of course, given that emails are invisible to LQ users, if I am not wrong. Regards.

Private messages are also invisible to LQ users. I cannot see the Private message you will send to "foo" Moreover you can report the inappropriate Private messages !

I consider e-mail messages as little insecure. If you send me an email through LQ, I'll get your e-mail ID and then I'll start spamming you !!!
