You will be able to send a pm now as you need a minimum of 5 posts as an anti spam measure

As above you will need to have 5 posts before you are able to reply to pm's.

Okay, so I just registered, posted a classified so that I can try and sell my Saab, someone asked if my car is still for sale, and I can't reply to him. Are you saying I have to come up with 4 other posts about something, anything, before I can make contact with this potential buyer? Or is there another way I can get in touch with him, or get him in touch with me?

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I'm a little lost as to why I can't respond to someone who has contacted me in response to an ad.

Thanks in advance...

I am afraid that the 5 post rule is essential due to spammers. Despite all our efforts, we still get dozens of posts from spammers that have to be deleted (users never get to see them, obviously) and without the 5 post rule all these people would be spamming your pm inbox. You only need two more posts to be able to pm or post a response on your advert asking the other party to send you direct contact details by pm.

See above, once you have 5 posts the pm facility will be available to you.
