This is a bit weird... at least twice now (the second occurrence just happened), I've gotten emails from the forums informing me that I've received a private message.

I then come onto the forums, click Private Messages, and there's nothing new, so far as I can see.

What's going on here?

Someone could be sending you one and then deleting it before you read it. They first go in an "Outbox" which are unreceived messages you can still edit, then once opened they're placed in your "Sentbox."

Or phpBB is bad.

Interesting... I did not know that.

Now the question becomes... who is sending me messages and then deleting them?

Just send me an email, damnit.

It's a useful feature since you can then see if someone actually opened your PM, and you can edit it after you've sent it if need be.

I have no idea who is doing it. When did you get the email(s)?

It wasn't me, but I'm going to start doing it now.

If I had to guess, I would say there seems to be some sort of apparition in this mechanical device.

I've been getting e-mails that forum posts I've made months ago have been responded to.

I log on and check, and naturally, nobody's posted on that thread for months.
