Private messages are ways for one person to speak to another person without them being in the same channel, or having others see the conversation.  There are two types of private messages, notices and private messages.

To initiate a private message, first you need to know the user's nick.  Then, use one of the following commands.

To initiate a private message, first you need to know the users nick.  Then, there is one of two options:
  
;<tt>/query Nick</tt> : Opens up the private message tab, but does not send a message.  The other user does not know you used this command.
+
# /query <nick> - Opens up the private message tab, but does not send a message.  The other user does not know you used this command.
;<tt>/msg Nick Message</tt> : Sends a message to the nick.  The private message tab opens for the other user, but not for you.
+
# /msg <nick> <message> - Opens up the private message tab, and sends the message.  The private message tab opens for the other user too.

Notices may be preferable if the private messages tab is not needed.  Notices are done by using the command <tt>/notice Nick Message</tt>.
+
If you do not need a private message tab, notices may be preferable.  Notices are done by using the command /notice <nick> <message>, with the message sent to either the server tab or the active tab of the user, depending on whether or not the preference for sending the message to the active tab is set.
 
 
Where the notice goes depends on the specific client.  In Mibbit, the location depends on the [[preference]] <tt>Notices to active tab</tt> being enabled or disabled.  If enabled, the notice goes to the [[active tab]].  Otherwise, the notice goes to the [[server tab]].

Somebody who knows how these work, feel free to write this section in.
 
 
 
=== Hybrid 7 IRCd ===
 
On Hybrid 7 IRCd networks such as EFnet, there is usermode +g to block notices and private messages.  It is called "Caller ID mode" and sends any user who attempts to send you or anybody else a private message one notice back saying the attempt failed and the person with +g will get the name and time the message was sent, but only once per minute.  If a person with +g wishes to allow another user to send a private message, the command <tt>/allow Nickname</tt> can be used.  To turn this mode on, use the command <tt>/mode YourNick +g</tt>.
 
 
 
Remember, this only works on Hybrid 7 IRCds.  These types of servers are rare.
 
 
 
=== UnrealIRCd ===
 
 
 
UnrealIRCd networks such as irc.mibbit.net have the usermode +R to block unregistered users from sending private messages.  To turn it on, use the command <tt>/mode YourNick +R</tt>.
