I see people sending what they call "tree mail". What does that mean?

It's sort of like email, except confined to this site. You can click on a member's name, which will take you to their profile, and one of the first options you'll see is to send them a Tree Mail. It is a private communication that only you and the member can see.

Or you can click on the little envelope at the top of the blue column on the left and select "Compose a new mail," but I find it easier to click on the member's name than to try to remember how to spell it correctly!

Hope this helps. Smiling

Edited to add: By the way, if that little envelope turns red, it means you have a Tree Mail.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

The good thing about the Tree-Mail feature is that only two people can read the mail - you and the recipient. No one else can look over your shoulder to see what is written.

Maybe "H-mail" ? I think they're called "Houzz" or something like that now.

I think the name "G-mail" belongs to Google.

Now that GW is newly screwed up again, mail is not called much. You go to Your Houzz (your page), then Messages.
