Private Message confusion???

 OK looks like ive confused myself on how to send a PM! In the last couple of weeks ive sent 3 or 4 PM's to members that are regularly online, and i noticed i didnt receive a reply from any of them, and i didnt realy take any notice til now. I checked my Sent Messages and none of the messages that i thought i had sent were in there so i started to look into it..

When you go onto a members profile theres a tab at the top that says "Contact" and one at the bottom of the page that says "Send this user a message." I always thought that these were the same thing but it looks like "Contact" sends an email to the users email account and "Send this user a message" is how to contact a member via PM's within the site? Am i right here or have i got myself into a confused mess! 

Apologies to guys i havent got back to, although i thought i had, especially grantarctic who made an awesome tranny bracket for the ski, who probably thinks i snobbed him off after getting it made! Sorry mate!

I only ever use 'Send this user a message' and have never had a problem.
