I don't receive notifications of Visitor Messages in my email... I assume this is the case for every member?

If this means that the only method that a user has by which he's notified that a GM/player is trying to contact him is by PM, then why the terribly restrictive 10 PMs per 12 hours?

Would it be possible to set a notifier for when you've received a Visitor Message?

When you set up your profile, did you select for it to send you notifications? If you chose not to recieve notifications at all or in some restricted fashion, this could keep you from getting an email notice. When you log into the site, underneath where it welcomes you and shows when you last visited, there is a selection for Private Messages. If you have a visitors message on your Profile, it will be included in the number of unread messages. Hopefully this answers your question, if not let us know so that we can help figure this out for you.

I'm setup for Notifications - I apparently missed it like a fool, since I went looking for it before posting.

My test Visitor Message post to myself didn't spawn a notification email though. I assume that's by design then?

Yes, that is most likely what has happened. I don't think that it will send a notice about something that you posted yourself. I will go put a visitor message on your profile and we will see if you get an email notice for it.

I rec'd a Notification when I logged in, but no email.

I'd have sent this via PM but I didn't want to use up my 10 per 12hrs while I'm looking for players. :p

Just thought of something, are they going into the spam folder as opposed to being with regular emails that have come in?
