I have just received a Topic Reply Notification for a topic that doesn't appear to have received any replies. The link in the email returns "The topic or post you requested does not exist". Relevant info from the email:

Subject: Topic Reply Notification - how to move over saved password information

The actual topic is http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=381310

I understand that posts don't get deleted, they get locked, so what else might have happened to this post if it did exist?

Perhaps the post got deleted by the poster before you got a chance to check it?

Ahh, That would explain it. I forgot about that ability.

Thanks,

For what it may be worth that did happen. I posted an "answer" then realised I was replying to the wrong question. Didn't know that a message was to be sent. I thought I would be the only one who knew I was a bonehead...(grin)

Usually not posting as a Guest. See above.
