Sending emails from the board
You know how you can go to a user's profile page and send them an email from there?

I did not know this until about 5 minutes ago, but when you do that, a copy of that email is logged into an admin log, including the text of the email.

So, if you want something to be private, use that function to ask for the user's email address, and then send them an email directly from whatever email program you usually use.

Yikes! I had no idea about this, glad you found it.

Be kinder than necessary, because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Still scrapbooking the old fashioned way.

There were only two logged, both of which had failed. So maybe only the failed messages get logged? It does log the entire message, including the text.
