Mysql member account types confusion

Hi I am trying to create a membership website where only members with certain specific account types can send a private message. The table that contains the members details is "mymembers" and there is a column called "account_types" that defines the account types of members as "a" "b" and "c". The default is value "a" but I want only members with account types "b" and "c" to send private messages to other members. I will be very grateful to anyone who helps me.

Below is how members who send 30 messages within a day are prevented from sending any more. I am finding it very difficult to query the database for the sender's account type and if it is "a" , prevent him from sending the message.

$checkuserid = $_POST['senderID'];
$sql = mysql_query("SELECT id FROM private_messages WHERE from_id='$checkuserid' AND DATE(time_sent) = DATE(NOW()) LIMIT 40");
$numRows = mysql_num_rows($sql);
if ($numRows > 30) {
echo '<img src="images/round_error.png" alt="Error" width="31" height="30" /> You can only send 30 Private Messages per day.';
exit();
}


The table "private_messages" is where all private messages and information on them are stored. "from_id" is the column that stores the id of the sender which is the same as the unique id a member gets when he joins the site which is also in the "mymembers" table as "id". "to_id" is the column that stores the receiver's unique member id while "from_id" stores the sender's. The id column in "private_messages table identifies the private message and stores it giving it a unique id. I am finding it very difficult to query the database for the sender's account type and if it is "a" , prevent him from sending the message. The receiver's account types could be any. I will be very grateful to anyone who helps me. If you need more information please feel free to ask. Thanks a lot.
