    Question 'Please inbox me' - meaning?

    Hello,

    I found the following sentence in the news story about the death of a young boxer.
    Boxer Omar Henry dies at 25, not long after writing he hoped to live to his 26th birthday

    Please be advised l am grateful for any and all support in any kind of way please inbox me.

    What is the meaning of 'please inbox me'? Does it mean please send me email?

    Thank you

    I've never heard anyone use "inbox" as a verb like this, but it's meaning is understandable. I would say "email me."
