On three occasions I got automatic notices from the forum that there was private message in my forum inbox.
Got there and couldn't not matter how much I hacked around find them.
After sufficient blundering I discovered that if you have 20 in the inbox any additional are held in some dirt of "pending" limbo. What' swore the sender gets no notice of this and thinks you're a flake not reading or replying to a private message he or she sent.
I managed to reduce the inbox below 20 (can,t remember if it was by deleting or moving some to a folder called temp that I created. And can't remember how one moves messages to a folder.
Recently another PM arrived in that limbo status.
This time despite flying around can't figure out again how to release it from limbo.
Anyone know the exact procedure?
