How do I send a message to a member?

You can send messages to other Postcrossing members through the Send a message! link on their profile page. You can find it just above the member's About text.

All messages are sent to the recipient's email address. To reply to a message you've sent, the member must access your profile page and repeat the process. In this manner, email addresses are kept private.

Keep in mind:

  • Be polite and use common sense.
  • Do not send direct swap requests to people who have indicated that they do not want to engage in such activities. You will see a helpful reminder below the subject box when the member has chosen not to engage in private swaps.
  • To prevent spam, the number of messages you can send in one day is limited.

If you are not receiving messages from other members or Postcrossing, please check the FAQ for email problems.
