Today I got an email message about a PM on PBS -- but in the text of the email was the content of the PM!  Is that something new?  I'm sure I've gotten emails from PBS about PMs before that said who it was from, but did not say what was in the message.

I've had that e-mail option turned off for a long time, but I'm sure that wasn't there before. I always wished it was because then I could have just dumped all those PMs with nothing but "thank you" in them without having to open them. :-D

I noticed that last night as well.  They must have been making some changes yesterday.

OMG! That is a wonderful new feature people have been asking about for a long time!

Mendy mentioned this a couple days ago. I think it just started this week. I never open my emails, just see I have one and log on so I haven't noticed.

I got a PM this morning and didn't notice that the text was in the email, but maybe because I'm so used to it not being there.  But how exciting!

Oh that would be nice. I don't even look at the emails anymore, but I'll have to start!

Where, in Settings, can you turn this on? I just got an old-style PM, and when I checked my settings, it was just the same old-same old options, and nowhere to check "include the PM info." Thanks.

Maybe this is just spotty since it just came online.  Sometimes programming new things into an existing system can take a while to permeate through the system.
