Might be workable, with enough effort
By , for WP 3.8.1

Requires a template file moved to your theme folder. It does not work with the twenty-fourteen theme "out of the box" and the tweaking was not worth it. The form and the layer-switching links were off to the left "underneath" the left nav sidebar. Might be a great plugin, but can't tell without investing a good bit of development effort. Should have basic functionality for average users (I'm a developer, and not willing to take the time to get it working). Looking elsewhere.

Excellent
By ,

This is a robust, straight-forward plugin that does what it says on the box. This is how every WP plugin should be!

Please don't mess with it in the future! If you want to complicate it, please create another, separate plugin.

Thanks for this!

Simple and easy to use
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plug in does exactly what it is supposed to and no more. It is ideal for backend messaging between members.

I would like to see more control over who can message who in a future version of this plug in. To elaborate - it would be nice if there was a setting that the subscribers, for example, could only message the administrators.

Bugfix
By , for WP 3.5.1

Reliable and flexible plugin. My notice if someone want to use it at frontend. There is an error when you try to view specified message, because inbox and outbox collision.
Solution:
1) Open plugin folder with includes:
\wp-content\plugins\private-messages-for-wordpress\inc
2) Open inbox-page.php and outbox-page.php in text editor. Find in each page the line which follows "// if view message" comment (usually line 10)
replace it with
if (isset($_GET['page']) && 'rwpm_outbox'== $_GET['page'] && isset($_GET['action']) && 'view' == $_GET['action'] && !empty($_GET['id'])) {
for outbox function, for inbox it should be 'rwpm_inbox' page in condition.

Cool messaging system
By , for WP 3.4.2

This is a cool "internal" messaging system. I use it on a site where students and mentors and instructors need to communicate with each other.
