Post FYI -- replying to PM notifications

Now that the board software includes the full text of PMs when it sends an email notice that you've received a PM (if you've chosen that option), it's very tempting to hit reply to that email and in fact a few of you have done so... However, when you hit reply, the message comes to and not whomever sent you the PM, because the notification email comes from the board.

So try to remember that you still must visit MoM and reply via PM -- or use the option on MoM to send the user an email, if they've enabled the ability.

Yep! But you're not the only one, and it isn't intuitive that you can't when you have the whole PM message there in the email, so I figured it was time to post it for the whole board.
