    Can We expect a Mail Box, for receiving - sending Personal messages between Hubbers within Hub pages, other than Forums and Comment Boxes,Fan mails.

    This will also help the Admins and Hubbers to easily contact each other,because, most people will be logged in to their hub pages account, and this will be more easier than checking Emails.

    That can be fine, and there should be an option given for ignoring! smile

      Yes ignoring or blocking people who try to spam.Just like in Email systems that most websites use.

    its a good idea if you find your mail box just after sign in to your A/C. This will improve interactivity between hubbers and then hubpages will look like a perfect Social networking Site.

    Except that Hubpages is more of an informational Mecca than it is a social networking site.

    We already have a system in place which allows Hubbers to email each other at the discretion of each Hubber.  We have a forum.  Hubpages staff are easily contacted via the forums in some cases and through email in ALL cases.  There's really no need for anything more - and honestly though a chat box or something may be interesting, it would detract from the beauty of Hubpages.

      Hubbers can email each other at present. But, it is through only External Email providers. .But,many times emails are not properly delivered by email systems and there is a great fuss to always check for emails every now and then. But, if there is a Inbox within hub pages,it can be easily known.

      How can there be problem to beauty of hub pages,when messages are delivered to your account page, and you can view them easily through a small link, just like we see the "url trackers","affiliate setting".etc.

    I have enough unread messages piling up in inboxes all over the sodding Internet already - the last thing I need is another place for them to accumulate.

      Yes some people create so many email ids and user ids all over the internet like they do here, so it gets difficult to manage all of them

    Again, Hubpages isn't a social networking site in the conventional sense.  The introduction of an "in house" email system would be redundant since we have the ability to email one another.  If you are having technical issues receiving emails from other Hubbers, contacting the Hubpages staff directly would be a good answer.

    Otherwise - imagine the nightmare and disaster of a message system on Hubpages.  Every wannabe network marketer or dude with a product to sell will email every Hubber in sight.  It would get fairly ridiculous pretty fast.

    Umm, I guess I have mixed feelings on this. I see Jenny's and Charlotte's points and kind of share them. At the same time, I had plenty of cases were my mail sent through HP was not delivered to recipient. Also, often I can't tell from whom I receive email, because HP username is not included there...

    The bottom line probably is - if those two issues are fixed, I don't see any need in HP mail. If not, I would like to see it. smile

      We've been considering adding a private messaging system, primarily to solve the problem that several have mentioned -- inconsistent email delivery.  The basic technical aspects are pretty easy to do, but it will just be one more area where we have to deal with spam, people wanting to block other people, complaints, etc.

        Happy to know Hub Pages is considering adding a private messaging system.

        The best way to control spams is to give an error message when people try to send a website address
