Help for this page

This page is all about sending a private message to another user or group. It is analogous to the "send to user" function of the Message Inbox, or to typing
    /msg username ...
in the Chatterbox, but without all the other baggage those nodes carry.

The same underlying function sends the message in each of these cases, so you will see similar behavior in exceptional conditions, such as when the specified recipient does not exist, or if you attempt to send the same message twice.

Learn about how to link to the Message Outbox.

[Discipulus]: ah ok, sounds reasonable; with no fear: Perl all life long
[ambrus]: Mind you, LaTeX is currently still useful for writing math paper or snippet content without styling in such a way that the
[ambrus]: formatting conventions of a journal or website can be quickly applied to it, and MS Office and LibreOffice has not quite solved this (although it's better for this than it used to be),
[ambrus]: which is sort of a drawback compared to the ages of typewritten manuscripts representing content only to which the typesetter applies formatting, but that process required much more manual labor.
[ambrus]: If you want to typeset a manuscript, you can still do much less work then in the manual typesetting ages and get good formatting.
[ambrus]: All with only cheap modern computers and software.
[ambrus]: Something you can have at home and your corner print shop, without a whole printing press's worth of equipment.
