I just got a message from a user called George Burdo emailed to me as a copy of a message on Moodle.org. However, when I come online and login to reply, it isn't there. The messages page is blank apart from my contacts list, which George doesn't feature in and a search box.
Searching for George Burdo shows the user record, but no sign of any message (Users: 1, Messages: 0), but clicking on the message history icon shows the message I was sent.
The expected behaviour would be for the main messaging page to show a reverse chronological list of messages, email-inbox-style and for a search to show a message as well as a user. Without this, the system is not much good.
My message settings are pop-up when logged in and email when not logged in.
