[answered] Problems with Private Messaging

This morning I sent someone a rather long, private message. I clicked "submit", and got the message that it was sent successfully. After I send a PM, I always check my Outbox, and my Sentbox. It was not there. Thankfully, I had copied it. So I sent it again, and received the message that the PM was sent successfully. I still could not find it. I figured that three times was the "charm" so I sent it again. It still does not appear in my outbox or sentbox.

Last night I had sent out some PMs without any problem.

Wassup?

Region. I got the second one, not the first. I replied, but it did not go into my outbox.

Weird- Took another peek at my "Outbox". All three messages showed up.
I think that I am going to buy a box of Wheaties for the hamsters!

when i sent the first one i got a "Cannot find page" page, and there was nothing in the outbox.

i think CdK is still tweaking the site, so maybe that's why it didn't work.

you did the right thing -- copy the message before sending!


Got this PM, but when I attempted to reply, my answer was not in the inbox. I never did get #1.

When do I get the right to send and receive PM's?

I've been here a while, and racked up some posts. I tried to subscribe, but that is offline at the moment.

Any clues?

Cheers.

The site does have some parameters as to when a member can begin to post PMs. For obvious reasons, what that parameter is, is not available to the general membership.

Just keep posting, and eventually you will receive PM privileges.

Builder, see this post for general PM info:

The first link there ( http://www.able2know.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=1218821#1218821 ) tells about PM restrictions.

I just noticed something about your first post. You copied it before sending. Do you suppose this habit carries over from Abuzz? I got to the point that everything that I didn't want to rewrite, I wrote in Word, and copied to Abuzz.

rog- No I didn't copy it from "Word". I had simply highlighted & copied the text so that if it got "lost", I could retreive it. I often do that, especially when I write a long post. More often than I want to admit, I will write a "brilliant" Rolling Eyes post, only to hit a wrong key and lose it.

Thanks Mac. PM service is now working.

Thanks to whoever for switching it on. :wink:
