Where are my outgoing PM's
« on: Tuesday 19 April 16 17:04 BST (UK) »
In the past, I've been able to look at both my incoming and outgoing PM's. Cannot find the outgoing PM's any more. Where are they hiding?

Go to 'My Messages'

Top left you'll see 'Messages' in white on a black panel. Hover your cursor over that and you'll get a drop down menu including 'Sent messages'.

There are two different formats of how the PMs are shown. KGarrad and JenB have given the solution to both of them.

If your messages are shown going right across the screen then you'd hover your mouse over "Messages" and go down to "Sent Items", as in the picture below. (This is the method JenB described too).

Thank you Rootschatters.

I knew it was in there somewhere but couldn't find the path. Familiar feeling?

Just went to check this out.  My Messages is 6th from left and when I hover over it the drop down box has only two items - Read messages and Send a message.   Any other place where they may be lurking.

If you click on Read your Messages that should open up the screen that Trystan showed.

Yes, otherwise you see a screen like this, and you press "Sent Items"

(It's all depending on whether you've pressed the little brown circled arrow or not that toggles/switches you from one way of viewing PMs to the other)
