Private Messages

When I log in, I see an envelope icon in the upper right part of my screen, just to the left of the My Account link. I thought this meant I had a private message waiting. When I click on it, I’m taken to my private messages, but there are no new ones. Am I mistaken about the meaning of the icon? Thanks.

We changed the envelope icon a bit. Now the envelope appears whenever you have messages in your private-message center, but blinks whenever they are new and unread. So the envelope will always appear unless you delete all your messages.
