=====Leaving messages in [[TheLounge | The Lounge]]===== has a very useful service that enables people to leave messages for each other even when they are not in the room. If you have registered your own nick and know a person's **[[ | registered nickname]]**, you can leave a message for that person. And if that person has NOTIFY set, (s)he will receive notification of a waiting memo on logging in (or be told there are no memos).

You can only send and receive memos if you have registered your nick - make sure you register yours and identify yourself when logging in!

In principle, leaving and reading messages is quite easy, just learn a few commands. To make it a little easier to learn and remember the commands for this type of messaging on (Freenode's) IRC, this page contains all the instructions you can also get from **""MemoServ""** itself - without needing to repeat those commands while you're in TheLounge.

Below each time the command to get help for a command, and the answer **""MemoServ""** gives.
