Title: How do we get to the Outbox in "Messages"
Post by: Richstang on February 23, 2018, 11:22:15 AM
I've looked for it, clicked on personal messages, but only see the Inbox.

Is there a method for getting to the Outbox that I haven't figured out yet?
Thanks

I don't know where "outbox" is, but I know where "Sent items" is.

At the top of the screen click on "My Messages".   When that opens, on the left should be a highlighted link that says "Message".  Don't click on it, just put your mouse on top of it and a drop down should show up with a list of "New Message" , "Inbox" and "Sent Items".   Go down and click on "Sent items"

I hope that helps.

That works for me.   Thank you!

I learned the hard way that I had to set to save the sent items otherwise they are lost.

Yes, same on the old forum. Too many time I forgot to check that box.

Is there a way to change that setting?

I just sent a PM and noticed the box to check to 'save sent msgs" has been checked, by default.   Good move guys!   Thanks!

You can change the setting if you want (by default now it is "on"). Click My Messages > Preferences > Change Settings and check/uncheck the box next to "Save a copy of each personal message in my sent items by default."

Like Bob I learned the hard way on the old site.
