Allow users to disable new PMs

Users now are are able to choose individually if they wish to receive PMs:

Staff users are exempt from this setting, they can PM users regardless of the setting.
The setting is under “interface”:


Nice. Can admins (and/or moderators?) over-ride this feature to message users if necessary?

If I’m not mistaken, staff (admin & moderators) are allowed to send PMs to all users regardless of the user preference. @tgxworld would need to confirm.

Yes. Staffs can send PM to anyone.


I updated the OP, thanks Vinoth!

What can be wrong if I can’t found that option on my instance? I tried similar words but we still can’t disable PMs :slight_smile:

It can be possible to enable PMs only from specific group?

The setting has recently been changed to personal message enabled groups so you can enable them for whichever groups you fancy. :slightly_smiling_face: :+1:

(Though I may have got this mixed up with the question you asked in chat Message #17116 by JammyDodger – #chat feedback, which may not be what you’re asking here. :slight_smile:)

Thanks! My bad, I missed what ‘groups’ means when looking for ‘enable or disable PMs’ like a bot.

Tried to search that chat-post from search but no results! Please remove duplicates if need :pray:
