Crying personal messages

I just got a reloading question from a young man that sent it on 9-11-17!!! I swing by this forum daily most days, and would have seen it if I had a message sent to me. The young man was sort of in limbo concerning some reloading powder, but the message took from 9-11-17 to today to reach me.

I sent the fella my opinion, but am not sure that it ever got sent to him. It did NOT show up on my "sent message" area. Is there a big problem with personal messages on this forum??

Thanx
Doc

Mate, I don't know if there is a problem here or if it is Internet wide. I've sent and received PMs on a number of websites, as well as e-mail, and there has been a definite lag. Admittedly, it was not 9 days worth, but it was enough to notice that it wasn't an instantaneous exchange of data. It makes you wonder just how much data is flying through the system every second.

Yes I did receive it. I guess it is possible that I missed that big number "1" on my personal message notification, but I don't think so. As I said above, I sent back a reply/opinion to the fella, and when I checked my "sent" messages, there was a "0" there.....no messages sent.


I don't know what to think of it, and so I asked for guidance.

I checked your settings.

"Send Notification Email When a Private Message is Received"
"Pop up a Notification Box When a Private Message is Received",
"Save a copy of sent messages in my Sent Items folder by default"

are all set to NO

I have set these to yes so you will get an email + popup when a PM is sent to you, and when you reply or send one to someone, a record will be kept in your Sent folder.

These options can be accessed from UserCP > Edit Options if you wish to change them back.

Please forgive an old fart that is nearly computer illiterate. I knew nothing of those settings, and have never changed any settings. I have never experienced this problem on other forums, so I thought it was a computer "glitch", or something. I do hope that the fella asking the question did get my response.

Thank you for taking the time and effort to help me out with my dilemma....it is appreciated.
