I tried to sent you my number as requested but the information was blocked as confidential and I was advised to reply to you privately but didn't find how to do it: it was a "no reply" address. How do I proceed pls?

If @Former Member  asked for a reply he meant to reply to the private message he sent you ie not to reply to the notification that you have a message.

that is open the forum and log onto it and up top you see an envelope. Click on this the message is there
