    Hi there, there's no such option to search Private Messages as they are that, private. Do you have an email notification from the old message in your email inbox? What I usually do is find that and then trace it back to the old PM.

    Sounds like it's not an option for the "new" format ???

    Now there is a search function... I keep finding stuff as I wander around the Forum...
    At the bottom of your Private Messages page, you can select how you want to retrieve messages....
