How and where?
EX to EX INSTRUCTIONS was created by Giulia and she talks about how to Send a Direct Message (Personal Message/Private Message).
You can also go to anyone's profile and click the Actions Button in upper right and then select the Message option in the drop down.
Your messages from old community haven't been migrated yet. All messages received to date can be found in your Inbox (https://excommunity.becomeanex.org/inbox?filter=directmessages ) which is the little bell icon in upper right of every page near your round Avatar image.
