Look in Mail > Inbox then Deleted/Sent
Going gone gone

As soon as you read any message it is gone from your Inbox.
When you Reply to a Private Message your Reply is moved into the Sent folder.
This only happens to Private messages though.

Public messages are right where they were posted.
To review messages to you that are Public, look at your own Profile.
Look at your own posts and review the Replies hyperlink.
You can reread the last 50 or so messages you have posted right there. (I think it is 50 and I refuse to count)
A greater number than 50 are also linked and can also be accessed.
There is a hyperlinked number beside the Subjects where you have last posted.
Those hyperlinks are to your posts on that subject listed chronologically. A Next button is included.
Older content you have posted is not always on the list of Subjects.
That list of Subjects is chronological so older material falls off and there is no easy way to find it.
The posts are still there mind you, and the material can be found, it is never gone.
I am not sure if anyone has discovered their own old posts by running for public office but I wouldn't rule it out.
I used to be able to read every post I had written on SI by just using AltaVista.
