    I cannot reply to PMs today -- the only option is the delete button. I've checked previous PMs and the same applies.

    Is it my problem, or TP's?

    Hi Hazel

    hmmm....

    I've checked my own PMs and I can reply to them as usual.

    I wondered whether you had exceeded some limit of PMs, but you are nowhere in the lead 20 of members with PMs [I'm top, as a bad spring cleaner]

    I've checked in the administration area and your details are what I would expect - ie nothing turned off.

    I've just checked that your member name is able to receive PMs and it is - I've sent you a PM to make sure.

    ...I see you have just replied - is everything ok now?:confused:

    Everything's fine now, Bruce, thanks. Must have been a blip!

    Took me a while to realise I could reply by sending a new message! Duh!!!!!!!!!!

    Finally got round to sorting the problem -- when I found I'd 'lost' my reply button again!

    Discovered it was there when I used IE, but not when I used Yahoo browser, and I tend to use Yahoo on my first visit of the day, so that I can pick up emails.

    Discovered that when I was messing about some time ago trying to work out how to increase text size in Yahoo, I must have unchecked 'Show pictures' on the options menu.

    Problem solved, I can now reply in both Yahoo and IE, and I'm a happy pixie again!

    I think I might have a bigger problem.

    I have bookmarked `Alzheimer`s talking point`, so I never login or out. If anything went wrong with my computer, I haven`t a clue what my password is, as I only used it when I registered, and haven`t used it since.

    I`m frightened to logout now, in case I won`t be allowed back in.

    :eek: :eek: :eek:

    I can reset your password if you get locked out, then you would be able to log in using that, then change it to something unique to you.:)

    But if you can't log on, you can't post or send PMs. So how do we get in touch? Email AS?

    Thanks, Nada. That's helpful. I hadn't noticed it!
