Contacting

You may contact members by sending an e-mail or greeting, or by replying to a message you've received:

e-mail
Send a personally written e-mail. Now Free!
greet
Send a free pre-written "greeting card". These are intended to be ice-breakers to get a conversation going, however beware -- some members ignore, or even block, greetings and prefer e-mails only. So use greetings with caution. E-mails work best.
Certain greetings (currently Primary Photo and Credential requests) are treated specially. Whereas e-mails and greetings which are normally sent to the recipient's Mailbox, and saved in the Sender's Sent folder, these requests are posted to the recipient's Home page, permanently, serving as a continued reminder, until the request is fullfilled.

Replying

While reading a message in your Mailbox, you may reply in three ways. These buttons appear near the top of the message you're reading:

reply Send an e-mail reply. Now Free!
greet reply Send a quick pre-written reply. We have about 30 to cover many topics.
decline Send a polite No Thanks. Please use when applicable — members appreciate closure.
