    Just how "private" is mail and PMs sent thru Lawnsite? Can it be screened just as any other post is? Or is it sent directly via other means?

    Email sent through LawnSite is sent via a mail() PHP function that simply takes your message and sends it, like your email client (or sites like Hotmail) do, and it doesn't keep any copy of the sent emails.

    The private message function stores your messages in LawnSite's database, like posts, but they can be only accessed by your username, when logged in. Private message really is private, email also is.
