For anyone running into emailing notification issues...
By , for WP 4.4.2

Wasn't getting email notifications when a message was sent to inbox. Found in send-page.php (plugins/pm4wp/inc/send-page.php) the following code...

$recipient_email = $wpdb->get_var( "SELECT user_email from $wpdb->users WHERE display_name = '$rec'" );

...on line 120 needed to be changed with...

$recipient_email = $wpdb->get_var( "SELECT user_email from $wpdb->users WHERE user_login = '$rec'" );

...as it was trying to pull with username, not display name. Hope this helps anyone running into the same issue.

Exactly what I needed.

I simply love this plugin. The functionality is great, allowing messages in the back-end. Only downside is that selecting multiple recipients could be improved with like a checkbox or something.

Works perfect!

I like this plugin. It works perfect. The only thing I miss is a better interface for the list of receivers. The window is very small. If you have 200 members...you can loose the overview. It would be nice if one could resize the window manually like the window for the mail text.

It works under WP v3.9

Even though notice says it may be incompatible but it works with v3.9

not correct view message on front end

Might be workable, with enough effort

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.

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

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.

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.
1) Open plugin folder with includes:
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.
