Could anyone tell me if they have the same problem as me, :-) whenever, I want to access my sent messages to see if they have been opened, I get the error message up.
Also if I wanted to seach my mail box for mail from someone , as soon as I have entered their name into the box and search this also takes ages and then comes up as error.
It is driving me crazy now, been a member on here for nearly 9 years and never had so many problems :-(

Sheila - You're one of a tribe! <3

Most of us could recite the dreaded purple Error Message in our sleep :-(

Hi Scozzie,

And I thought I was special ;-) It is becoming a real pain as I cannnot tell if messages sent have been opened, also when someone from a while ago contact me I cannot access or search for our previous correspondance, has GR come back to anyone over this ?

Sheila, the best thing you can do is send a message to GR (look under Help), but let them know you don't want the usual generic notice, you want a REAL answer.

The Error Message states it is logged, but the log must have over a million logged by now.

We keep getting told "we're working on it"........... doing what I wonder :-D

Sheila ...................

I don't even get the Error message when I try to open Sent messages

I just get NOTHING

I haven't been able to see any Sent messages for at least 6 months

and GR does know about it ................. there is a thread re Message Centre on this board.

Quote from GR ..................... "we are sorry to hear of this problem. We are working on it"

pshaw! :-P

Seems like it is a major problem on here, there is many a time when I am helping someone and the names seem familiar from the past , and I cannot see what info we have exchanged before, :-(
So has everyone on here sent a message to GR and just got the automated message back ?. funny how they do not see all these comment and yet a while back on some of the thread we thought they had someone 27 7 with their find on the button deleting comments ;-)

I do not like the new format of FR either , maybe I am just getting old :-S
