Problems with PMs

Sorry if this subject has been raised before.

There seems to be a malfunction on the 'Submit' button on the PM composition screen.
When I first used it it brought up the 'Preview' function. This confused me the first time, and I left the function and lost the message.
I then realised what had happened, rewrote the message, hit the 'Submit' button, and then from the 'Preview' screen hit the 'Submit' button.
This appeared to work.

I hope this is not just me, although I do lose patience with computer systems more easily these days.

This is the first i've heard of it, although it isn't an easy fix. Adding custom modifications to the code makes it a maintenance nightmare when there's a new version out.

The usual PM complaint is that new members can't post until they've posted 5 messages to the forums (the same as the moderation queue). We have a good reason for it, but often new members want to (legitimately) use PMs.

Richard,

Neither of us count as 'new members'.

I do not know, as yet, whether my brief reply was picked-up.

That’s meant to say ‘I am not a new member’

When you press send it will go in the Outbox until the recipient logs in or reads it (not sure exactly which).
