Has My Postings gone for a while or forever?

I hope it is just in highway terms "closed for re-surfacing?" My Postings saves an immense amount of searching to follow up an interesting post

Much less important to me, but occasionally a very useful device now absent, is the Yellow Envelope. Am I the only one to mourn its passing?

Numpty me Of course I couldn't access "my posts" because while trying to send the opening post I was prompted to sign in again. (One of those periodic checks on passwords)

So the first post was pointless except to ask about the fate of the yellow envelope...?

We all have those numpty moments me more than most :-(

I did read on another Post that the Yellow Envelope has been replaced by the Grey Envelope alongside Posters names - but it don't work!!

Periodic checks on passwords? I've never had one of them on this forum, a couple of other forums seem to do that, but not this one for me. Are you sure you are not clearing out your cookies periodically with a maintenance program?

I've not had to "log in" since "saving the cookie" from being eliminated by Ccleaner and that was months ago.

This occasional re-sign has been around on my PC for ages, and I think is a part of my BT- Yahoo setup. I've no record of how often this occurs but have the impression of about 4-6 weeks. When it occurs, it is only a minor inconvenience, repeating my Email address and password. Though I use CClean, I keep cookies out of the scan.

"I have not had a virus since MSDOS and pre AT? computer."

That statement is simply asking for trouble!

In another thread currently running, a member has CCleaned his BT Yahoo cookie and is struggling to avoid having to sign in every wretched time. It may be only BT Yahoo that requires an occasional refreshing of passwords. Like AOL (long ago) now with BT Yahoo I tend to install a new piece of software by its defaults knowing that I can customise it later if I need to which isn't often. I use CClean about once a week solely to deal with untidy registry issues

Thank you morddwyd:---- I also walk under ladders and kick black cats.
