4This is my first Drupal module: a very basic private messaging module.
5It allows your site's visitors to send private messages to each other.
6It does not use Jabber at all (but could be fun to use it).

738b232d 311. Copy the files to the Drupal modules/privatemsg directory. Drupal should automatically detect it. Enable in administration/site configuration/modules.

738b232d 332. Check "access private messages" in "roles and permissions" in the administration; anonymous users should not have permission. You can also change something in "settings and filters".

47If you are upgrading from versions before 29-Apr-2005, you will need to run the
48appropriate SQL statements from the privatemsg.install file. Open the file in a
c89656a9 49text editor to determine which statements you will need to run.
