I am using unclecheese's postale module and i wanted to know if there is an way to open an messages/add window by passing an parameter.

Why? On my page, every user has an profilepage (where you can read things about him, like name, birthday, etc.) and there i want to add an "write a message" link. When the user clicks on that link the "create new message" window should popup.

Can some one help me?

Best Regards

Yeah, that's decorated on to the Member object.

<% control YourMember %>
<a href="$SendMessageLink" rel="fb">Send $Name a message</a>
