    After you reach 10 you have to wait a bit (maybe 1/2 hour) and then you can PM. I can't remember the exact time.

    Do I need to have 10 in order to read a PM someone else sent me? I see that I have a PM, but am unable to view it...?

    You need 10 posts before you can send instant messages. After you hit 10 the system needs to register that you have met the necessary threshold, which may take a few minutes to a half hour or so.

    Thanks so much! I don't necessarily want to send one, but I understand that someone sent me one, and I'm unable to view it...is that strange?

    No. All the extra options (private messaging, creating an avatar) are only available once you've reached that 10 post milestone. You can see that some one sent you a PM, but you can actually view it until you've got PM capability.

    I didn't think anyone could send you a PM until you have 10 posts. Is it an "Alert" maybe? Near the top of the page, next to your username is "Inbox" and then "Alerts." If you have an unread PM there will a number in a red circle above the Inbox. An Alert means that someone quoted one of your posts, "liked" one of your posts, or tagged you in a post, and you might get an Alert for a profile post (which are public but on your profile page). You should be able to see your Alerts regardless of how many posts you have made.
