eMails gone - what does it mean.Page 1 of 1    
Hi.
I've recently been communicating via this site with a lady in Kansas

We've only been corresponding a short while, but we've sent a few e-mails each. Today I got a message to say that she had sent me an e-mail on Friday (I've been away for the weekend). I logged on today but, not only is there no mail from her in my in-box, all previous mail from her - but not from other people - has disappeared from my message page. What's going on?

If all mail from her has disappeared, I believe that it means the person had their account removed by the admin.

If someone deletes their own account, their mail would still be in your inbox.

    Since none of the messages were over 30 days old, I guess she must have been deleted from the system. Any idea why that would be? Her profile seemed pretty inocuous.

    As to putting names in the forum - oops, sorry, hadn't realised.

    Thanks for that. I guess you never really know, but she really didn't seem the sort of dame that would do anything that offensive.

    And if none of those are the case, what is the real answer?

    Also, why are my email settings changing everyday. It keeps putting in the wrong email address to notify me and it turns off allow users to see that I viewed them.

    Hi. Been checking *Help, All Forums, etc, etc,* for a hour for an answer, but to no avail.
    My problem is that I sent a few messages to someone I've been corresponding with and she in turn sent me messages back...Except I keep getting an error message "Object not set in reference to ..." Basically its yellow and white page with a lot of sophisticated wording that comes up when I tried to read her message. I've tried a few old ones and the same thing occurred. I am still able to locate my profile in user search as well as do just about every thing else.

    how do you know they WONT take it away...????

    It kind of neglects the original statements that were bannered everywhere that convinced me to join in the first place... free, hassle free, easy to meet ppl... the flush makes it very difficult especially if your a busy person who also likes to take things slow...simple as that. And if this be the subtle differences between, this and premium well then i have been mislead and duped and would rather pay elsewhere than be suckered as such

    There is no difference in email retention time between a regular member and a serious member. This is a FREE site with 18 million members. It is a matter of available resources.

    I totally agree, this is a horrible feature. I might want to correspond with someone and read messages a year old..

    ^^^ lol. Your on the worlds largest internet dating site and it is FREE. So sweet of you to demand unlimited storage for old emails on a free site. Perhaps contact the owner and offer to bankroll his next server upgrade to allow you unlimited storage!

    Hello ya'll....


    I have a notification for 1 lonely message in my inbox but when I go to view, lo and behold it's not there! Ohh .....magic lol.

    I've done everything that each thread I've researched suggested. Clearing, refreshing, sending myself a message (which was fun btw) and Ctrl F5, and ..etc etc etc.... still can't view it.
    Either it's a glitch or there really is an invisible message?

    Could someone kindly look into it? Thank you

    Ok I tried this out with a friend she sent me message I sent one back then had her block me. Her message from me was gone but her sent message was there. On my end all messages from her and sent message from me was gone . So I'm thinking its not always true that any messages Re left after someone blocks you. I have nothing at all from her

    Like MANY things on this site it does not function consistently.

    I have seen it delete only one side of the messages and I have seen it delete ALL messages.
