question about accessing archives

Hi, I have several posts I saved in my home email for future reference (posts from before the board style changed). How do I access this?

Thanks, Michele

To find your posts again, do one of the following:

Use the search function. You can use the search function by going to the board you posted on and putting a keyword in the 'find messages about' field to search for. If you sign your posts with your name, this would be the easiest way to find them. The search feature only searches the body of a post, not the title/subject line or by membername.

If you know approximately when you posted, browse through the archives. Go to the board you posted on, click on the 'archives' link located below the board title and browse the list until you get to the dates of your posts. You should then see them listed by membername within that time frame.

I hope this helps!
