My PM's were working fine as I remember in June but in October (2011) I received a message, typed in my reply. Clicked sent and it took me back to the inbox folder without sending the message. I can still receive messages but I can't send them. Help?

Take a look at your sent items. When you send a PM, you will be redirected to you inbox, hence you may think that you never sent the PM.

It doesn't send the PM, it just redirects me, it doesn't show in my sent folder.

Does the same thing happen if you try another browser?
I've tried Safari, Camino, TenFourFox & Firefox on my Macs and IE8, Firefox, Chrome & Safari on my PC.

So what do you see in your main Private Messages page in the drop down box?





When you click on Sent Items, what happens and please post a screen shot if you can.

As you can see I have sent a message, but that was on June 5th 2011. In June I went offline from the forum for a while up until about September/October so it must of been somewhere in that time scale when something went wrong...

Ok, have you tried to PM anyone since you started this thread and what was the result if you did?
