Private message issues since site upgrade

I searched, but didn't see anyone else mentioning this, but since the site upgrade (which is otherwise pretty nice) I have had a continuing problem with the Private Messaging feature. After sending a message, I often receive an error message, but most commonly it just switches over to a blank page. I've tried using MS Edge, MS IE, Firefox, and Safari, all resulting in either a blank page or error.

Additionally, the email notifications of PMs are greatly delayed in comparison to the functionality prior to the upgrade. Delivery of PMs is also much slower, e.g. one I sent to Mike at RidersDiscount took almost a full 24 hours before he received it.

Lastly, the PMs I send are very inconsistent as to showing up in my sent box.

Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this wonky behavior, or if perhaps there are some settings I should adjust to improve the reliability of the PM feature.

Thanks.

Thanks for reporting CC. Im sure YSR or admin will have a look pronto. They are pretty Johnny-on-the-spot.

Did you try turning it off and then back on again?

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

That's like Tech Support 101 first thing they say is did you "Reset"(hate that advice)....I gave CC the benefit of doubt he tried everything already look again what he tried...long time member. :

No it's something else hope the "editor mode" helps at least fix the blank "reply" in PMs or Quotes that has been a major problem for me as well since the upgrade hope it helps others too.

Thanks, Bloo. For the suggestion, and for giving me the benefit of the doubt when it comes to basic computer skills.

I just tried your idea by sending myself a PM, and it seemed to work better - no blank screen or error message. I wasn't aware of that setting, and it also seemed to go through much faster.

Cheers!
