    Today I tried replying to a private message 3 times, but to the best of my knowledge my reply has not been sent... ie; I can't see the sent message in today's sent message box so I think this individual is likely waiting to hear from me. My apologies to that person.

    It is quite possible that I am having a dumb moment or one of my "dumb days" , but I have used the private message feature before with no problems so I am fairly confident in my skills here...

    I can see all of my other sent messages and replies from past days and monthss, just none from today..

    Is it just me or ?

    Thank you.

    Back to my reply which this time I will copy and paste into Word.

    I have never been able to figure out how to review a sent message because they are never stored in my "Sent Items" folder.

    What you need to do is go into 'Forum Actions/General Settings' and scroll down until you get to 'Send Private Messages' and check 'Save a copy of sent messages in my Sent Items folder by default'.

    As to why it's just become a problem for Christina, I do not know. If this continues Christina, let me know.

    Ha! That's such a nice way of saying that it's been a problem for Mike all along because everyone knows he's such a dummy. I plead guilty as charged.

    Seriously, thanks to Christina for bringing this issue to light and to Donald for turning on the light bulb.

    A dummy here - always wondered why I have nothing in my "sent messages" list!

    Hi Donald,

    Thank you. I must have unchecked that box somehow... It is checked again and once again I can see my sent messages.

    Andit is nice to know that others share my technical challenges...

    I just wish these things weren't quite so contagious.
