Default sent message not appearing in folder

Hi,

I've been trying to PM someone and while it appears the message sends, it doesn't appear in my sent folder. I have tried twice. I don't want to barrage this person if they are going through. I want to be sure there's not something I'm misunderstanding about how this is supposed to work. And if there's a problem with messages going through, I'd like to figure it out.

Hi loveboth,

I think the default setting is to not save your outgoing messages. The person you're messaging probably got both messages you attempted to send, but they were not saved in your sent folder.

To save future messages to your sent folder, do the following:
  • When you compose a message, look for the "Additional Options" panel. (You might have to click on "Go Advanced" first.)
  • Look for the option that says, "Save a copy of this message in your Sent Items folder."
  • Check the box next to it unless that box is already checked.
  • Compose your message and click on "Submit Message."
  • If you're sending a message to yourself, it might only work for that message. If you're sending a message to someone else, I think it might be a permanent fix. (Don't quote me on that though!)
For more info, send a message to one of the moderators.

Sincerely,
Kevin T.

Kevin has it right - it is not automatic, you have to choose that option in your User CP.

Oh, my....noooo... Whelp. I am super embarrassed! I think I just send like 30 replies to the same person because they weren't showing up. I have become exactly like my mother on Facebook. The shame!

I don't suppose there are magical ways to delete already sent messages before they think I am some kind of oddly repetitive stalker?

Such. A. N00b.

Alas, I don't think you can withdraw a message once you've sent it. Maybe an admin could do it but. D'oh!

No, we Moderators do not have access to anyone's Private Messages.

I will just have to live with my shame I suppose.

Thanks for clarifying, in any case!

It's a good thing we can't access PMs - you all want your privacy, don't you?

FeatherFool, if you want, you can PM me and I'll pass a message along to whoever it is for you. Just in case they're ignoring you, I can tell them the mistake you made, although they might ignore me, too! Don't worry, it will be kept confidential.
