Everything about this plugin has impressed me. For our specific usage, we needed a solution that provided a high level of security and quite detailed configurable options. I tested out a wide selection of other messaging plugins before discovering Front End PM. Really wish I'd come to it sooner. It is a spectacular piece of work; beautifully crafted, with precisely the configuration options we needed - namely, being able to manage specifically who was able to message whom, according to role. From my research, this isn't an option in any other the other solutions. Clearly, the developer has put great time and care into making the plugin secure, versatile and, despite being complex, the configuration process is simple and intuitive. I haven't seen the likes of this before. Of particular note; I raised a couple of detailed questions with the support, for our specific usage. The response was immediate, detailed and absolutely on the button. I recommend the pro-subscription - the features are awesome, and software of this calibre deserves acknowledgement.
