    Default Private Message Question?

    Is there something in place that prevents new members for using PM for a period of time? I received a PM from a member, sent a couple of replies as well as a message to another member and don't see anything in my sent items?

    I don't think so. If it states that it wasn't sent or is not listed, you didn't send it properly, missed a direction perhaps?

    for the record, you're a senior member
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    All my sent messages are visible in the 'sent' folder... don't know what your problem might be, though.

    In "Settings">"General Settings" There's an option to save sent messages to your folder, or not. I suspect you're not set up to save them.

    Victory is mine.... Thanks for the replies, should not have assumed it was on by default.
