I received a demerit due to my posting impropriety. I would really like to have this turned back on because I was conversing with a couple different members getting advice on the side.

Thank you!

Nobody turned it off and your profile shows it's still active.

What sort of error message are you receiving?

I must only be able to see it when I have an unread message. If not I do not know where to find private messages. What do I have to click to open private messages? Also I had 8 received messages but it won't let me send a message. Not sure what I am doing wrong. Thank you.

A couple of days ago, the "Private Messages" line did not appear for me; I simply reloaded my browser (edit for clarification: refreshed the page) and it reappeared.

I've been exchanging PMs with several people over the past few weeks without troubles.

Nothing under that but the User CP FAQ Members List... etc bar.
If I am understanding your problem correctly, you might want to try this...

If you click on "User CP" and then after that page loads, go down the left navigation column, to the "Private Messages" section, you should be able to click on "List Messages" which should take you to the InBox where you can find your messages, or click on "Send New Message" to create a new one.

Hope this helps,

Yea!!! It now says Private Messages again!! thank you. How many messages can you have in your inbox before it is full?
If you follow these steps...

If you click on "User CP" and then after that page loads, go down the left navigation column, to the "Private Messages" section, you should be able to click on "List Messages" which should take you to the InBox where you can find your messages, or click on "Send New Message" to create a new one.
...then you should see a colored-bar that indicates how full your box is, and immediately above it a message that tells you that you have (count) of 150 messages total.

So, you are allowed 150 max combined total messages (inbox plus sent-messages).

Hope this helps,
