Access to private folder   Administrative Issues

For some odd reason, one of my members at my forum said he has access to one of my private folders? I checked forum management and set privileges and everything's clear and doesn't show that I've given access to a private folder to him. Not sure what's going on? He stated on a PM of what was going on. I also tried to send him a PM but his profile doesn't have the "send personal message" thing? Wanted to let someone know what's going on. Here's the link to my forum:

I see you recently made changes to folders. When first setting folders private, members who were in the forum will have access until they have logged out. It's best not to use folders like that for critical info for a couple of days.

When there is no PM link in someone's Profile the member has member to member email turned off in Preferences. See if  you can email via the link in Set Privileges when you bring up his name. Ask him to log out. close browser.

Another possibility is that someone with access is passing on details.

let us know how it goes ...
