Effective immediately due to spammers/scammers trying to collect email addresses in order to directly contact members:
You cannot copy yourself on the email unless you are logged into the site.

In addition, brand new users cannot copy themselves for a certain period of time.
This is for the same reason - spammer/scammers who actually sign up and then copy themselves.

This checkbox on the "Contact a Samba Advertiser" screen will only appear if you are logged in:


For the present time you can still email people without an account and without being logged in by filling out the form above.
This may change in the future if it becomes an issue with scams/spam.

What does sending yourself a copy do? :?

You get a copy of the email that you sent to the seller.

Some people like to have a copy for their records.
