Has anyone else noticed that when you try to clear out old PM messages, you can no longer delete the messages that you've sent? You can still delete messages you've received; but not the ones you've sent. Has anyone else noticed this?

I’ve just tried mine Chewy and both received and sent boxes have deleted.

Hmmmm! Thanks Beechnut, I'll contact GNHQ to ask then.

That's odd, let us know what GNHQ come back with.

Just off to try it!

I have not noticed that. Can still delete if I choose to

I’ve seen sent ones deleted from my pm messages.

Mine are still there but I have remembered this happened before when people were complaining they were being deleted without permission

And, it seems, GNHQ can delete those I have sent in reply?
I understand that a sender may wish to delete, but surely my replies are 'mine', regardless of content?

My last message went before I even read it. Ah well.

I've just been able to delete my sent messages no problem. went to.

User777, open the message you want to delete and select the dustbin icon at the top of message and it will ask you what you want to do.

I was curious about this so off I went to my Inbox to check, and I can delete both sent and received messages. Have a safe day GNetters!

I’m always intrigued to know what’s been deleted!!
