    Where's my mail?

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by MickeyMouse on 01-May-08 08:20. forgot to attach image)</P>While I was in this morning I noticed that I had mail (see image). When I clicked on the flashing envelope it brought me to my mailbox but there wasn't anything there? <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Is this just a clever hoax to make me think that someone actually wanted to email me? <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    The icon indicates you have an unread private message (not email) - I can't think of any reason why it would be there if you didn't!
    Can you double check by clicking on the Postbox link?

    It's probably a glitch - a bit flipped which made the system think you had received a private message.

    Do you still see the envelope next to PostBox?

    Hi Hans,

    No, the envelope is now gone. Thank you.

    I still think a glitch is the most probable explanation, but it's unlikely we'll ever find out...

    This will happen under the following circumstances:

    <UL><LI>Someone sends you a PM.<LI>You don't log on during the live of the PM<LI>You log on after the PM has been automatically deleted[/list]PMs are only kept for 2 weeks to save resources and get deleted regardless as to whether they have been read or not.

    Hope this helps,
    Cheers, Claude.
