What do the various envelope icons along the far left side of the forums mean? Is there a legend that explains them?

Ktulu is right. But also you should see a legend near the bottom of each index page - the page where you see the envelopes alongside the threads.

Ah, found it. I never see that as I am always looking the a page of search results because I only click on the "View New Posts" link.

OK, I found it on the bottom of the page in each forum. Like ktulu I use the view new posts option all the time. Many thanks. :)

Ah! You're right. They (vBulletin) should have the legend at the bottom of the search results pages also. I checked and it's not included on those pages in Ver 3 as well.
