Travel Forums System Talk Messages

Can someone please give me a run down on the travellerspoint messages. A friend is concerned that messages she sends can be seen by members of the public/travellerspoint members. I can't seem to find anything in System talk or FAQs, any help would be appreciated.

Only the sender and recipient can see the messages sent through the message center (small "My Messages" link in the top right of each page, big green button on user profiles). I could swear that before the redesign, that was called "private messages", but if so, the word "private" was dropped somwhere along the way. The functionality is still the same though, with these messages indeed being private.

For completeness sake, there is one way in which someone else can read one of these messages, and that's if the recipient marks it as spam. Then a copy is sent to the admins, so that they can read the message, judge if it's really spam, and if so take action against the sender.
