    Help, severe dis-luck handling Private Messages

    Hi All.
    I thought I'd post this here instead of in a PM in case it's a more general case.

    I have a rather full message bank, 135 msgs, so I have been trying to save them as anything I can, text, csv, etc onto my computer.

    No matter what method/how many I try to save, I DON'T see the actual text of the messages when I open them, just the page coding for the browser.

    Anybody have any answers for this?
    Thanks, Am.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    which browser? I just tried the text option to check and I got all my PM's in a .TXT file saved to my desktop

    For anyone unsure of what we are discussing here. In your PM inbox, you can select a message or series of messages using the small tickbox, then scroll to the bottom and on the right is a "selected messages" drop-down menu, with options to save copies of the messages to your computer. This allows you to retain a copy and delete them from the AP site to free up space in your messagebox.

    Rick, it's Firefox 3.6.17.
    It downloads 25KB worth of stuff but there is no actual message text, just H,X-TML.

    hmm.

    I can access them and copy to a word doc and send to you if you want, but it will not be tidy.

    HOORAY! I just got it.

    I had "Accelerate with Firedownload" switched ON. When I switched it off, BINGO: there was the actual message text.
    I did it on a single message, then again on a group of them.

    Looks like it doesn't like the accelerator.
    Thanks, Am.
