    Hello Thread

    As far as I see it if you say "I have received a message" you speak about the result of receiving and this process was successfully finished(so it means you have this message now) , but if you say "I have been receiving a message" you also speak about a process which started somewhere in the past but we don't now whether it was finished or not ( so it means may be you don't have it now)
