Noticed on a couple of occasions now that my IM's have vanished ( basically they dont

appear in the sent IM's section, or get to destination )... not sure if anyone else has had

this happen to them ?

I haven't heard of this happening to be honest.
I have lost a couple over the years but that happened when the sever went offline, I am not aware of the server dropping out of late.
Please keep your eye on it and let us know if it happens again!

It's the same with my PM's (don't have IM capability)
But tbh is a lot better as only being able to store 5 messages
was a pain because it used to save sent messages which counted towards the 5 :(

Is this a new feature or have I dropped lucky :confused:

Hi there, yea I'm not sure either why it would be missing :(. Maybe just make sure the "Save a copy of this message in your Sent Items folder" box is checked under Additional Options before you send your message. It happens to me sometimes when it gets unmarked somehow and my sent messages aren't kept lol.

I just realized you were asking about Instant Messages. Sorry :(

Also- make sure you are not Reporting rather than sending a message if using the icons at the top right of a user's posts.

Any received messages and sent messages gets purged from the system @500hrs. Any unread messages remain though. This is my understanding from observation.

I'd say that might be user end - presing close instead of send?

Other times- internet connection user end...

... then sometimes AO server handshaking the client on the sent thing, but actually dropping it. I've not seen messages disappear from the In/Out folders unless auto purge on the read ones or if I delete them.

Also AO is running slow for me ... not just at home but yesterday at work also, is this connected ? ... :confused:

Again this am ... replied to some IM's and again after pressing send ... nothing appears in the sent items .. but then I refresh the page and the IM I have just replied to appears again - therefore I have to re type ... very strange ...

My Internet is working fine with anything else I use .. just seems to be AO for me ... :)

Got a problem of missing M's again .... :rolleyes:


When I reply to an IM.. they appear to send, but not in the 'sent items' box ... then when I refresh the page or go to a different page they appear again, so I have to reply again ... :(

Also ... when they eventually do send and when I get a reply ... the bottom section where we type is already filled in with my previous reply ... :confused:
