Title: Outbox/Sent Items
Post by: acidredux on May 21, 2015, 11:42:00 PM
How do I find my sent messages/outbox? The "save a copy to outbox" is always checked when I send messages but I can never find them. I am currently trying to do something that will be split over several messages and it would be helpful to see what I sent in the previous message and where I left off. Also it is hard/impossible for me to paste more than once into one message, or to quote someone's message and then paste from my phone, which is the only way I've been able to access the site.

You can't. It says you can, but you can't. The board is a dirty bastard liar.

(I had a similar problem recently. Got knackered and could not remember what I wrote to save my life.)

Thanks @lysyn! Plus rep. That sucks. Anyone replying to any of my messages, please quote my original message in your reply. Thank you!

Is my message box different from everyone else's then? Because I can see my Sent items fine. It's under:

My Messages > (then look down at lower submenu, appears in white) Messages > Sent Items

To ensure you've got "Save Sent Items" checked, go to:
Profile > Modify Profile > Personal Messaging

and check "Save a copy of each personal message in my sent items by default."

Thanks , @Addie!  :)  It's working for me now. But I swear, even as recently as this morning there was no "sent messages" option in any of the drop-downs. @lysyn, try looking for it again using Addie's suggestion.

Weeeeeeird. :crazy: It must have had to do with the recent host issue where our board wasn't communicating properly with our database!

Mine are there now too, but they weren't. And I had the save sent messages checked as well. It drove me nuts because I'm not the best at getting back to people in a timely manner so I'd forget what I said... plus drunk messages. Not that I ever drink and message or anything. :whistle:

In my case, it could be me just learning how to navigate the site on my android phone. Sometimes the dropboxes disappear before I have a chance to select an option. But I could have sworn I tried everything that had anything to do with messages, and never saw a "sent messages" option until now. Anyway, thanks for your help. Plus rep.
