Thanks for the work moving over to the new forum. Probably a silly question but when I tick 'leave a copy in my outbox' I can't find that outbox. Any ideas  ???

Hi!
go to my messages and then hover over messages to show the dropdown with "sent messages" you see in the attached screenshots (yorky and default theme in one image).
Just ask if you need further help!

There are also "advanced settings" for personal messages under your "Modify Profile" link in the section called "Personal Messaging" - this link should take you there  https://fractalforums.org/index.php?action=profile;area=pmprefs

In there is an option to "Save a copy of each personal message in my sent items by default."

You can also choose to view messages as conversations in there - another new feature we brought in to make V2 a little better than our fine predecessor site.

Hope that helps   O0

One more option is to check the box to use sidebar menus.
All menu selections are then visible.
See attached image.

Thanks very much guys. After finding sent items I switched on the sidebar menu for messages. I'm impressed by the number of options in Profile. Rates and Subscriptions are interesting. I'm happy with the forum settings.  ;D

no problem!

subscriptions aren't set uip or even properly planned - we just wanted to have the option.
rates have just been added two days ago (that little thumbs up below each post) - we'll have to see how we can optimize that.
