PM not appearing?

I got a PM from someone yesterday, just logged in and it’s not there, although it says 1 message on my inbox?

:think:

Phew...for a minute I thought this was heading into a “who’s leading the country at this unprecedented moment of calamity?” thread.
Stand down. Take a breath. Onwards.... :headbang:

Dumb question, but have you actually scrolled down far enough? If you're not on a full size screen the layout of the whole PM interface can be a bit confusing.

Thanks, there definitely aren’t any messages there, but this may still be pilot error.
I think the guy may have sent me an email via SOS, and I deleted it as I thought it was a link to a message which I never click on owing to possible spoof emails.
This really is a pain, as it was someone wanting to buy something.

You can check you in box by:

1. click on My Control Panel in the grey bar under all the navigation links at the top of the forum section.

2. When the Front Page opens click on Overview, then Private Messages from the drop-down.

3. When the Compose Message opens, click on the Compose Message button , and then In Box from the drop-down

You will then see all received and retained PMs...

Yes, it's a hideous system, but not one of our making and not one we can change, sadly.

Thanks Hugh, yes, I’m OK with that, but it was me not noticing it was an email someone sent me!

Most email clients send deleted emails to a Deleted Items (or similar) folder so unless you've emptied that then there's a good chance you've still got it.
