May be I'm missing a personal setting somewhere else. I have site notification enabled but when I receive new private messages, it never notified me.
If it was never implemented, can the "alert" notify you new private message as well?
Yeah, it's something that's been missing with the new site layout.

bump, no one can tell if they've received PMs...
I can receive PM just fine, there's just hasn't been any notification.
for me, I can't tell if I have PM, in fact, If I have 0 PM, I have the "Inbox (0)"
If I have one, I see:"Inbox (System.Web.UI.WebControls.Literal)"
I guess System.Web.UI.WebControls.Literal don't mean 1 in any language, so, I think it is a bug
I think that's a .net ASP thing, it's not being able to retrieve the number or something like that.
I got this same bug today when I had 1 new PM
The only solution I've found for this:
If you have a new PM and go to your profile it does say 1 new PM under the logout option in the top right. Also it will say Inbox(1) when you select your name at the top right of the main website menu. Notifications could be useful though..
