Private messages

Apparently, I receive private messages occassionally through JavaRanch.
I receive an email notification that I have received a private message, along with a URL to the message.
What if I disabled email notification ? I can't seem to find a link or some entry point into "my private messages".

"My Profile"
Sounds a little misleading i.e. I wouldn't say that "my private messages" are part of "My Profile", but I'm glad I found it anyway

It would be nice if PMs had their own link that could be seen regularly, maybe with a number of unread messages. Ok, basically I guess it would be like intrasite email.
Out of site, out of mind. I hate finding a message from someone asking for help... a week or two ago. Ok, ok... I'll turn email notifications back on!

I agree. Here's the link:
