    Getting the same PM 3-4 times - bug or user error?


    Over the past few weeks I've been receiving 3-4 PMs for every one PM sent to me (on these forums).
    John will send me a PM.
    I receive that PM, then I receive 3 MORE PMs with the same title & body text - they're basically exact duplicates.

    I noticed that there is a checkbox on the bottom if you write a message, which is not check saying "keep a copy in send items".
    As i was sending a PM to someone i didnt notice this checkbox and checked my send items to see if it was send... But by the looks it wasnt.

    So i resend it till i saw that checkbox...

    Maybe thats the cause people send Pms multiple times?

    That is most likely the issue, saving sent PMs is off by default (you can enable in the options)

    I have been having this happen to me a lot though, receiving multiple duplicate PM's (sometimes 3 or 4) and they are from different people so it is possible it is a new forum bug because it only started happening after the switch.
