You would have to programm that by yourself. Privatemessaging is a module on it´s own.

I discovered a bug. Sometimes Nicknames with "$" drive the Template-Engine mad. I did a workaround with htmlentities(). I appended the altered module-code.

I added some more functions to the modul. There is a message counter, that can be used to notify users of new messages. This has to be implemented in the main controller (Page.php). I did it like this:

        //Return number of new messages
        function newMessageCounter() {
            $messages = DataObject::get("PrivateMessage", "ToID = " . Member::currentUserID());
            $newMessageCounter = 0;
            foreach ($messages as $message) {
                if (!$message->read) {
            return $newMessageCounter;

My navigation include ( reflects this:
                    <% if newMessageCounter != 0 %>
                        <img src="privatemessaging/images/icons/envelope_closed.jpg" alt="alte Post">
                    <% end_if %>

The modul has a navigation, that looks like a widget or subnavi container.

I did some changes to the privatemessaging module. Now messages are marked as read/new. Sam asked me to implement i18n but I didn´t succeed yet. After putting some _t() in the template I ran the textcollector. I had a message "Running task 'i18n Textcollector Task'..." but nothing happend. Any hints?
When I´m done with i18n I will create a patch for the original module.

I'm currently having the same problem. How did you fix this?

I haven´t fix it jet. I did all text collection by myself.
