Default Private messages not working

I have a couple of DMs from users interested in buying my Argyle Jacket listed on the trading forum. I was able to respond to one of them earlier today, now I am unable to respond to either of them. I click "send" but it doesn't appear that they are sending. I don't see them in the conversation,and there's nothing in my sent folder.

Is there an issue with PMs?

Check your profile preferences:

You want to make sure this option is checked-marked:
Save a copy of sent messages in my Sent Items folder by default

That may solve the issue of sent messages not appearing in your Sent folder.

Sent messages will not appear in your "conversation". After you send a PM, it'll look mostly the same, but the "replied" icon will appear to the left of the message:

If it's been read by you, but not replied to, you'll see this icon instead:

I'm not sure about the "not able to respond" part of your question. There should be a button to the lower right of their PM to you that looks like this:

I hope that helps.
