Private messages problem
#1
I have now had two messages sent to my external email account (the first was a week or so ago) saying there is/are private messages waiting for me.

My mailbox is around 50-70% yet the two new messages are no where to be seen.

Any ideas of what the problem could be?

I have pasted the notification below:-

Hello Chris Hawes,

You have received a new private message to your account on "http://www.deloreans.co.uk" and you have requested that you be notified on this event. You can view your new message by clicking on the following link:

http://www.deloreans.co.uk/forum/privms ... lder=inbox

Remember that you can always choose not to be notified of new messages by changing the appropriate setting in your profile.

I had the same thing twice. It was actually a 6 month notification delay. I received 2 PMs - in November (at a guess), but with no notification. Then I got the notifications (about 1 week apart) in May this year !!
So I would guess the notification refers to PMs you have already read.

Are you asking me or telling me?

"I have lost two messages." - statement

"Have I lost two messages?" - question

I suppose if your notificaiton came through quickly then it is working ok.
As a precaution I cleared the smtp mailbox at the ISP prior to sending the test.

I have not tested down to intricate workings but you may have had a notification if someone sent you a PM (i.e. it is in thier outbox).
If for whatever reason, the person decided to delete it later prior to you looking in your mailbox maybe it won't be there.

I will do this as a test to your mailbox, date stamped at the time of this posting.

NickT.
