    The "Save a copy" feature on the Private Message area does not appear to work. I've clicked on this, but it is not saving anything to my "Sent" folder.

    Ok, let me try again. [​IMG]
    When I send a Private Message, having clicked on "Save a Copy" before doing so, no copy is saved in the "Sent" folder.

    Rain,

    Well, I just tried it myself and it saved the message I sent to the "Sent" folder. Very strange!

    Rain,

    Let's try one more thing, make sure you're clicking on the folder box at the top right hand side of the page. It will say "Jump to Folder" click on arrow down to reach sent folder.

    Click on Save A Copy when you send it as you have. Then you have to use the forum jump in the private messages to look in the Saved messages area.

    I just tried it and it worked just fine for me.

    Never mind. Found the problem.

    Unlike every other drop down menu, it won't take me directly to the Sent folder just by selecting it. I have to click "Go." I'll keep that in mind.

    I found that the drop down box worked without hitting the Go button but then I found that I had to refresh the page if I didn't use the go button.

    I tried it without "Go" and with refresh and still got squat.

    Between that and having to log in every 2 minutes (what seemed to solve this no longer does), I'm beginning to think it's my computer or something.
