Is there a problem with the PMs? I've tried to send a couple to ChefDean and neither has shown up in Sent, Outbox or Drafts folders.

I just sent you a PM as a test.

At this point, I can see it in the Outbox, which I couldn't with the ones to ChefDean.

Every once in a while, when you hit submit, it goes to preview. You then have to hit submit again to send.
I have had this happen often enough I just look specifically for the note that the message has been successfully sent.

Weird. I guess I typically go to Preview first? Anyhow, it's looks like the 3rd try went - it's in the Outbox.

I feel like I also have had some PM issues, but haven't been careful to track the circumstances. I did have two 'submit' attempts just seemingly disappear in the ether - not in my outbox or sent messages. I guess it could have been a full inbox on the other side, or user settings that didn't actually allow PMs to be sent to them.

Or sometimes the messages hang out in the outbox for awhile - a day or more.

I'll try and pay a bit more attention - also to check that I'm not short-circuiting myself with the 'preview' button.

Messages sit in the outbox until the person on the other end reads it. I have one that has been out there for months now.

I've just had the PM problem again. The Submit button causes a screen blink but I don't get the message sent screen nor anything in the Outbox. I was trying to send to ChefDean so maybe his in box is full?

Interestingly, I was able to message Chef by putting my message in a Reply to a previous message. I could see it in the Outbox, so I assume Chef can read it. So the problem seems only to do with new messages...

Weirder yet, I just tried a test message to Chef and it went to my Outbox. So the problem healed itself?
