    I just sent you one with the instructions.

    click on the persons name and it opens a window with "start a conversation" in there among other options.

    PM (private message) was the verbiage used with vBulletin software. Conversations is the way the new software, Xenforo, likes to characterize the feature.

    Under our old software, a PM was a single stand-alone message to/from a single user. Very difficult to follow when each followup message contains quotes of quotes of quotes of all the previous messages in the chain of independent messages in an attempt to maintain continuity.

    In XF, a "conversation" acts much like a private thread in the MB, with all the messages contained in a single linked conversation. In addition, there can be multiple users involved in a conversation. Conversations are private, because nobody except invited participants can participate in a conversation, or even see that it exists.
