I've requested that it be added as has at least one other person. I'll re-vocalize right now!

@Cstar1 May we please have the ability to paragraph.

I find it interesting that all the PMs I wanted to keep that are now lost were when the forum was still in the Classic format not the zeta--perhaps that's why they didn't survive the transition? Could they still be on a server somewhere? she said hopefully

Forums shouldn't have any impact on PM's. They're separate systems.

Try clicking on the name of the person you were exchanging PMs with, and open their mini-profile. Then click on Send Private Message. Your entire Conversation (all messages to and from) with them should open, with the oldest messages at the top.

Let me know if you are still missing messages in that conversation after following Cstar's instruction.

I have a theory but am open to being proven incorrect lol http://forums.delphiforums.com/service/messages?msg=53585.25

Thanks Cstar but I can't GET the names of some of the people because they are gone, a few even have died; and the only place their name is now was in the lost PMs. I can't get any further back than 2016 with the PMs and some of these went back to 2011. Any help is appreciated! If I had known they would vanish I would have found a way to save them but it was easy to leave them in my InBox so I didn't.
The more recent ones, last few months, DO open just as you say.
Thanks

I'm sorry Risa, I would hate to lose those messages myself.

So, where do the messages go after you read them?  The ones I read just disappear, off the list and the rest move up.  I must be missing something... but I know they are not where they were before I read them and not at the bottom of the list either. 

oh, wait... it's a disorganized mess...   I must be missing something still.

Hi John, do any of the Conversations on your main PM screen (list of all the people you have PMed) show a number in the New area? You might have to scroll the entire list of conversations and click on any that have a number other than 0 - they SHOULD all be listed first, then all the conversations that have 0 new messages. Things do not seemed to have "jigged" correctly for a good many people. It might have been because a lot of us were trying to keep things tidy by deleting messages. This new system gathered all messages between you an another poster into one conversation. If some of those messages were deleted it might not be sitting exactly where it should be.

Sorry if I am either explaining this poorly (very likely!) or wrong lol (also likely)

Everything you post i a PM to one person should all be in your "Conversation" with that person. The newer PM's are at the bottom of the "Conversation."

The list of "Conversations" should have those with unread messages at the top, and those with only read messages below that, in order of date, with the newer ones at the top.
