When I send a message to someone regarding a possible connection it comes up in my sent messages as asking to view their tree but I have not asked that. :-|

Other people have moaned about the automatic message, but you're the first person to have mentioned that that is how it appears in your sent box.

Presumably you changed or added a title to your message rather than leave any default? :-S

I deleted the question in the subject box and put my message in that box, annoying and I don't know what they receive. :-S
