"Sent" Mail & "Inbox" Mail
Board: Letterboxing Help Desk
Jul 9, 2014 9:31am
Thread
Just wanted to double check to see if I understand this correctly - if I send someone a message, but they haven't read it yet, their trailname will remain in bold font?

Also, my "Sent" messages delete after two weeks, so after two weeks, there is no way to tell if they have ever read my message?

======
for "Inbox" Mail, only the last 30 days of mail are shown? Meaning that if someone hasn't logged in for 2 months, they won't see mail sent to them from day 31-60?

Asking because I am trying to get a stamp back from someone who doesn't log in often. :(

Read messages are deleted after 30 days. Any UNREAD mail will still be in their inbox for a full year, but you are correct that you have no way of knowing if they've read it or not after the first two weeks.

Unless they have their AQ mail forwarded to their regular email account. Then it will never be bold. But if you do see a name in bold, then yes, that means it has not been read.

Kind of 'round-about' way, but if you really need to save a sent message longer than two weeks, open the message, forward it to yourself, and from your inbox, you can archive the message. Of course, the read/unread is irrelevant at that point.

I just have to say, Shawna, thank you for asking the questions you do and noticing the changes that have happened during your absence - you are bringing good energy to the boards, reminders of some of the changes that have happened, and fun reminiscing opportunities as well. Keep it up AND welcome back :)

More-or-less, but it's not infallible. It's easy to mark a message as read or unread at whim, and if they forward messages to their regular email address, the icons means absolutely nothing. Even if they have messages forwarded to an email address, the trailname might be bold or not--there are two different forwarding options and one leaves the message as read on AQ and the other leaves it as unread.

So in a nutshell, as a rule of thumb, it might work. But really, there are absolutely no absolutes when it comes to knowing if someone has read your message or not.

If a message from AQ Mail (either sent or received) is not archived and then later deleted by the system, is it gone for good? Or is there a great abyss of messages through which one could search...

Lock & Lock or Lock N Lock or is it Lock and Lock?

Is there a significant difference between Lock & Lock and Lock N Lock?

I always thought it was Lock N Lock (LnL) till just went online to try and purchase and my search brought up both LnL and L&L.

And while we are on the subject, best place to order online? Right this minute am needing 8 of the small 10oz containers.

A while back we ordered a 30pc set and the price was fab but included were a few ridiculous sized containers that while we did end up finding uses for them, eh I don't want to bother with or store.

Use this information wisely as in the right hands it could bring about a change that could lead to world peace, the elimination of hunger, eradication of disease and a true honest to goodness Triple Play package of Phone, TV and Internet that would deliver unsurpassed service and unlimited choices and programming for the low price of only $9.99 a month!

Does it also guarantee you winning a multi-million dollar lottery? I would like the money, please.

Wait, are you saying that a piece of mail that could sit unopened in my inbox for a full year that I opened after 364 days that could then sit open in my inbox for 30 days that I sent to the trash after 29 days where it would remain for 30 more days before AQ deletes it is now gone forever in order to free up disk space and bandwidth for more important things?

But that means I only had 629,424 possible minutes in which I could have decided to transfer it to my archive folder, where it would have remained until the AQ server decayed from disrepair decades after the zombie apocalypse. I don't like making such hasty decisions.

I'm in need of some small, round containers that can take the winter weather around here. Where it will be hidden will be mostly safe from ice and snow, but it will need to be water-resistant and take the cold. Does anyone have experience with these round containers?

FYI, these are not particularly small. 250ml is about 1 cup, so others are 2 cups (500ml) and 3 cups (750ml).
