    After posting a newsgroup message, or a private message to another player, my browser now always says his page cannot be found - although the message seems to be posted succesfully - anyone else getting this?

    Edit: Gadzooks - Predicatably it didn't do it when I posted this - it did when I sent the PM just before, maybe it's only PMs that it does it on now...

    In MSIE you need to turn off "Friendly HTTP error messages". It's in the configuration page (scroll down a little on the page with all the checkboxes and you'll find it).

    With that disabled, you will start to see the actual error messages... it could be you're getting a mini redirect that's being misinterpreted as an error.
