You have a couple of ways to do that, Mel.
1) If you are reading a thread and want to send a PM (Private Message) to a poster - click on their name in the column on the left side of the page - this will open a "drop down" box .... scroll down to "Send a private message to <their user name>." and click on that.
2) Go into your Private Message area. At the top of the page, below the DC logo, look on the right hand side of the page .... it should say "Welcome Mel!" and below that you will see a link for "Private Messages" - click on that. This will open a new window ... on the left column of the page click on "Send New Message" ... type in the name of the person to whom you want to send a message, etc.
