You have to have posted a certain number of times , I think, to send an IM.
Look at the other poster's name...and you'll see a bunch of icons. Click the IM and you're set. Or click on the email icon. I'd be glad to help.
Thanks, but I don't see an icon to send IM. I just see add to contacts and profile. I think I don't have enough posts yet to IM. Would you be willing to email me directly? I have read many of your posts could use some wisdom and guidance.
