No Sophia, if you click preview you don't lose it.
You lose it only if you go out of the private message without clicking submit.
If you want to know if you sent the message, just check the "Outbox" folder: if you sent it and Maria did not read it yet, your message is still there.
Or if she already read your message, you can find it in the "Sentbox" folder.
But if you cannot find the message... that means that you've lost it. Confused

Well, thanks Simmy for the quick reply! Yes, dope me! I already had checked as you suggest and sure enough not there. Phone rang and I quickly went to Preview, but I guess not really IN, and lost it when clicked.
Maria wanted to know about my research etc. and it was a long message. So, will have to do it again, problem is no time now.
Thank you so much for checking!
Sophia

A little tip: next time you need to write a long private message or a long post, I suggest you to write it in the note pad (a Windows program) and save the document every 2/3 lines, so you are sure that you won't lose your text. Then copy and paste the text in your message.

Simmy,

Thanks for the hint! Generally when I plan ahead I go to Microsoft word and do like that, but you know how it is when we guys start "talking" ?- there it goes. I had a bad interruption for a silly thing, and tried to click preview very quickly and that was that.

So, How have you been? Going across the Ocean just for music? I would like to see Steve Vai in Puglia this summer, but not likely!

Have been very busy preparing for a trip, not writing much.

Thanks again,
Sophia

Aether - this has happened to me too - so many times it wasn't funny...and always on long messages! It's what we Brits call 'Sod's Law!' Shhh

So now I'm very careful when I KNOW that a message is going to be long and complicated (translations are a good example) - I simply open an MS Word Pad and work on that - the beauty of this method is that if I leave that window for any reason I don't have to save it - the page just minimises and goes to the bottom bar on my screen. Once the message is complete then I can just cut and paste it to a reply box on the forum I'm writing for. The Word Pad page can then be saved (if needed) or just deleted. I have even left an incomplete message there overnight and the Pad is there when I 'start up' again in the morning (I never switch off my pc unless I'm going out for any length of time).
