[Investigating] Inbox Empty

PaulO Classic. © says:

I have been here since 2008 and I have kept most of my correspondence in my Inbox as certain letters need to be referred back to from time to time.

This morning, I went to my box to check on a mail to find the box is empty!!!

Is this all part of the new upgrade? Am I missing something?

I am not impressed!

1. Look again now? Could have been a temporary glitch.

2. If still broken, maybe you should contact the Flickr Help people directly here.

Same here. I have 9 unread flickmails, but when I try to access them, inbox is "empty". Happens 3 day in a row now. To refresh page usualy fixes it, but next time when I try to access mailbox, the issue is back.

And same happens with my Recent activities, now and then when I open it its empty, telling me there were no recent activities yet.

Thanks - I have tried the refresh route and it works for that instant, then starts playing up again.

Probably a Flickr glitch.

Page not fully loading?
My flickrmail is there, but I have noticed several group discussions with only the original message until reload.

It has nothing to to with page loading because it contains info text telling me I didnt receive any flickrmails yet.
(While above is icon showing I have XY unread).

So the page is loaded but it behaves like there is no flickmail history at all.

Hmm this FlickrMail bug seems to only be affecting select accounts.
