If you know who sent em (Elfie is one), I guess the best thing to do is go back and see if they can send it again. When someone sends me recipes or I see one I like I copy it into a Word file for storage so I don't have to worry about deleting the wrong PM when making room.
Of course, be sure to cut and paste who's recipe it is too, I didn't do that at first and now I have tons I am going back and figuring out who gave em to me!

I usually print them off, but in this case I knew they would be all nice and tidy in a thread I started..... all of them that is except the one that was PMed to me

No biggie. I could always politely ask for her to send it again, but I guess I expected my missing PMs to be saved somewhere, like a mail program puts them in a deleted items folder until you really want to delete them and not just move them to make room.

I'll have to get in the habit of saving them myself somewhere.

My process is different.

If there is something I want to save from an online source, I always copy it right away to my hard drive. That way I have direct control over its destiny. Recipes on food sites are sometimes removed, sites disappear, servers crash and stuff is lost...

I never could see the need for a recipe box on a website where you could store stuff from that site for future reference. Plus, It's a lot easier to find on my hard drive.

The flip side to that Andy is that hard drive crash and die too so you could lose your stuff just as easily that way. Servers crash, but are usually backed up so it is rare that stuff is permanently lost.

That being said, I do it the same way you do.

Which is why I bought an external hard drive!
