no sent messages

I sent a private message to a list member who had an item advertised for sale. Looked in my Sent Items folder a day later and there was no evidence of me sending a message. I checked my options and I do have the box checked that says "Save a copy of sent messages in my Sent Item folder". Didn't hear back from the seller so I sent another pm. Same results, nothing in my Sent Items folder and nothing back from the seller. I also have the box checked to alert me via email when some one sends me a pm. Since I am not getting copies of sent messages into my Sent Item folder, how can I confirm that I am even sending messages rather than simply thinking that I am? The Sent Item thing use to work in that I do have two old saved messages in that folder, but it does not appear to be working any longer. Thanks.

I don't think that it becomes a sent message until the other person actually reads it. Maybe he does not visit that often.

Coops.

You need to check the box in your profile to save sent messages. It's off by default.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

I do have the box checked that says "Save a copy of sent messages in my Sent Item folder". Is there something else?

I reset your profile to make sure. Try sending me a PM and see if it appears in your out box. I'll reply to it when i see it. When you send a PM, you can check the box for

Request a read receipt for this message

to make sure it's been read if you want.

GreyWolf, hope you are still following this thread because at 9:20p last night I did send you a private message per your instructions. I checked my Sent Items last night and nothing. I checked again this morning, still nothing listed as sent and no reply from you. I'll be off line all day today but will check in late this evening. Thanks.

I haven't received anything. Are you sure you're selecting private message and not visitor message? I just sent you a PM to check that side of things.
