From a previous thread:

Quote from: Erato on Wednesday 28 July 10 14:39 BST (UK)
This question comes up so often, wouldn’t it be a good idea to send a welcoming message to new members that mentions, among other things, the 3-post requirement for sending PMs?


It's a lovely idea, but the idea behind it is to prevent people registering to spam Rootschatters, so if we told them how to do it then it would defeat the purpose.

If we delete the thread then your number of posts will go down so you won't be able to send PMs!  Best leave it for a while until you have a few more posts to your credit.  I think it is explained in the how to use rootschat bit but no doubt, like me, you never read the instructions when you are keen to get started on something!
Regards
Andrea
