Sentbox in PMs

239 41 July 18, 2017 at 09:10 PM
None of my sent messages show up in PMs, and when I go to my private activity stream and try to click on the visible sent message I get the following message:

Invalid Private Message specified. This usually means that the Private Message you are looking for has been deleted or it never existed in the first place.

If you believe you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator.


Any suggestions on how to fix this? Do I have some privacy filter enabled?

Not sure if this is the issue or not, but do you have your profile settings set to save your sent messages? If not, then that could be why you get an error, but I'm not a dev so can't swear to it.

To see if you have it set to save your sent messages, go to your profile here https://slickdeals.net/forums/profile.php?do=editoptions
then scroll down to Private Messaging and make sure you have the "Save a copy of sent messages in my Sent Items folder by default" box check marked.

We also had a bug recently that caused some PMs to be deleted when they shouldn't have. While we've fixed the bug, unfortunately the data is not recoverable.
