    I've tried a few times, now, but can't delete a replied to PM. Strange!

    Maybe try moving it to another folder then delete it from there? Maybe it can't be moved, either? Let's hope it's not incriminating since it will be around FOR-EVER.

    And then I moved on to another PM and reply... and then the attempted deleted PM's were gone. Weird! Well... if it happens to someone else, we'll know that it isn't a one time experience. But we'll still never confirm if I'm crazy or not!

    Probably a cache glitch. The message was deleted the first time but the index link was cached either on the server or your browser. So it kept showing up until the links synced up.

    If the problem persists or starts showing up in other areas Andrew probably needs to go into the admin panel and rebuild the indexes.

    I think we all made up our minds a long time ago.

    I had this same problem a while ago. I just kept pressing delete until it worked. Not the most brainy solution but hey I was tired. And it worked!

    Could be related to the save draft function hack... Also make sure you're not clicking back
