You go to the PM tab, click 'from me' and then 'unread.' It will tell you which have not been read. However, keep in mind that PBS now sends the body of the PM in emails as well, so the person might have read it via email even if they haven't checked in here at PBS.

I usually read my PM's in the email I get, so if it doesn't show as read on here does NOT mean it hasn't been read.

You only get your PMs in your email if on your profile page you mark to receive them there also.  LOTS of us do not want all our PBS stuff showing up in email also since we get on PBS daily so we have chosen NOT to receive double messages!
