What this means is that only one communicating member need pay for use of this service!

The 48 hour retrieval policy applies only to communication between registered non premium members.

The receiver of an internal message is notified immediately the mail is sent but he is not allowed to read the message until after 48 hours.If he replies the message, you will be notified immediately the message is sent but you will not be able to access the message until after the expiration of 48hrs.

This is to ensure that premium members get the pick new tenants or properties but still allowing non premium members a chance to communicate with each other.

Your best bet as a non premium member if time is an issue is to contact premium members first, as this policy does not apply to communication between premium members and registered members in either direction.
