Viewing Sent PM’s?
« on: November 25, 2017, 12:32 PM »
I just sent a PM to somebody yesterday. When I pull up Sent Items it’s just blank?

I know when somebody responds to a PM I can see my sent message but if somebody doesn’t respond can I still see my PM somewhere?

That is because the default setting tells the system not to save a copy in your Sent Folder. Go to Profile and modify it as below:

Modify Profile

    Account Settings
    Forum Profile
    Look and Layout
   -----> Personal Messaging

Save a copy of each personal message in my sent items by default. ---> check the box.

Perhaps the system designer thought this would save some memory space...but I have never come across any messaging systems -- forum or business/corporate -- that have a starting point like this.

Ok thanks. I just assumed it did like 99% of other forums. I’ll look for the box to check going forward.
