Hi Everyone
Just noticed if I send a PM by right clicking on someone's name and avatar in a thread/post it isn't recorded or shown in your User Control Panel.
For someone like myself, with too many things to remember and not enough years left to recall, it could lead to early dementia ...

Really frustrating trying to remember what you may have actually posted to someone if you can't look back at it.

    If you have more than 500 messages in your outbox/sent messages, it automatically deletes the newest message. The maximum number is 500, so you would need to go back to your oldest messages and deleted them to see your newest sent message. It is likely a website/forum code hinderance that keeps the messages from being deleting by the oldest sent, rather than deleting your newest message.

    Same goes for the inbox, but instead of deleting the newest message over 500, it will just block you from opening the new messages until you delete old messages.

    This is a great guide for All members:  Ultimate Self-Starter Thread For New Members
     
     
    Click the "PM" in the (second) header inside of Forums (after you log in)
     
    then select "View More"  - [I like to rt click & open in a new tab] this should take you to:   https://forums.evga.com/pm.aspx?FolderID=0
     
    this photo is close enough to get the idea ---> to the right of [Send New PM] = "View More"

    Before you send the message simply tick the option "Save a copy to my sent folder". Done.

    Want to save 5 to 10% on your next EVGA purchase? Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

    You are right Sajin!
    You and Cool GTX nailed it.
    I was unaware, it always has been the default setting to save sent pm's at other forums.
    Thank You everyone
    Problem solved

    PS...the_scarlet_one I will watch for that after I get a few saved pm's...
