Loc: Utopia, not in literal sense, ...
Friend Max, There IS a way (quite simple, really) to retain a copy of PMs. Both Jackie and Caradea -and perhaps others - can 'splain it to you (as they did for me some months ago.)Whilst I durst not trust my 19th Century memory or 17th Century computing skills, I feel certain these AWAD stalwarts would gladly oblige you. As to the other problems involved w/ PMs, there may be equally simple solutions. In any event, "Good luck! We're all counting on you!" (This is a quote which my (grown) children often throw around. I think it may be from a film or perhaps a Monty Python skit.) As I review other posts to you, it occurs to me that I also have sent PMs to you in your other-worldly _(i.e. non-AWAD) name. E-mail works well enough.

Do you mean the receiver should make the effort of copying the sender's PM into their PM when replying to a message? That certainly is one way to get round the problem of not having a 'Sent messages' folder, nonetheless, I think Max sees the PM system as 'fatally flawed' (sic).

In reply to:

One does not get a record of one's sent PM's

Why not just compose PM's in an external editor then C&P them into the Board's message window? Sounds easier than posting a rant here.

I'm posting this publically in deference to your dislike of PM's Max. I tried emailing you from AWADabilia but it was bounced back with the following message:

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at paradise.net.nz.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

Sorry, no mailbox here by that name. (#5.1.1)

I just got a bounce-back too!
What's going on down there at the top of the world?
