I'll send you a PM and you should see a "Reply" (with quote balloon), "Add Reply" button as well as a text box under "Fast Reply which you can type your message and click "Post".

There is acytually a Send button and a Use Full Editor button.
You would click Send.

If you were to click on Use Full Editor it brings up a bigger with 3 buttons.

Just dont delete the message UNTIL YOUR DONE because the PM system on IPB sites is in "Conversation" mode.. They are like PUBLIC THREADS but if you delete it,the other ppl your talking to ALSO LOSE IT!!!! (I forgot that one day and deleted my PM thread and the staff member i was talking to had to manually reply back)

Wished to add, you need to be in the messenger interface to reply. You can't reply in the notification window that pops up. ~ OB
