Sending PM problems

i am trying to reply to someone who I have been communicating with over the last few days, via PM, and when I try to send I get the message ‘the message you are trying to access does not exist please press your back button’. I have tried composing a new one to this person, and all sorts of things, but I can’t seem to be able to send one. 

Ok I’ve read another thread on this, is appears you can’t add a’smiley’. I have removed it and it has now sent. 

Hi Charys, 

I am very sorry that you have been having issues with private messaging. As Jobey68 has said we have found out that this is due to a problem which occurs when a user sends emoticons in their private message. 

This has taken quite a long time to sort out and we apologise for that. We are in talks with the provider and are now hopefully closer to resolving the issue.

If you have any questions please do contact us at .

Best wishes,
