Vanishing Messages

I will appreciate help with the following problem:

I recently sent two direct, personal messages to two different members on this forum.

I don't see either message in my outbox.

I will tell you exactly what I did:

By clicking on their names, I was directed to a web page which provided information about these users (stuff like when they became a member)

At the bottom of the web page, I saw the statement, "Send personal message to so and so"

I clicked on the aforesaid language regarding sending a personal message.

I was directed to a page which enabled me to type and send an e mail

I wrote the e mail and I clicked the appropriate button to transmit the mail

However, as I said NOTHING IS IN MY OUTBOX. 

Why.

I thank you for your comments and assistance.

The system doesn't automatically save a copy to your outbox. You have to tell it to do that. I know, it's weird and annoying, but we're stuck with it.

When you're composing the message, check the box at the bottom of the page that says "Save a copy to my outbox."
