Cherry : regarding your PM box, i have sorted this out with admin and we both have determined that it is your PM box that is not working properly.. it is very likely that you have max out your 150 messages allowed. if you do not delete some messages, all your incoming PMs will be blocked... also, ensure that your Outbox contains less than 150 messages...



Ken

Thanks.

You are the ONE we can rely on to SEEK (the cause) and CONQUER (the problem).

Kennynah, the Conqueror :o :shock: :o

I checked my PM box. There are a number of messages, from you and others, stuck there for some time, some unread messages from as long ago as Nov 2008. I will reply them shortly as I have to attend to something else for a while.

Funny! My inbox is only 77% full. I have not max out the 150 messages allowed, yet some PMs were blocked.
