The system prevents messages from being sent if there is no subject line. Can you please PM me the technical details of this message? (who sent it, when, was there any unusual entities in the message like script).

Right click the inbox page and click "View page source".

Then press Ctrl + F. Then type 'class="inboxUnread"'

After this is a URL which says something like 'href="/you/inbox?view=blahblahblah"'

Copy the "/you/inbox?view=blahblahblah" bit between the ""

Open a new tab and type www.instructables.com then paste the bit you copied.

It will open the page and you can then press the delete button. I think. I'm waiting for a test message from someone with a space as the title so I can test this for you, but I think it will work.

yes, here is what I got.. that is before I deleted the message

this was the URL I got

href="/you/inbox?view=X716YIXHRWND9JP"

Sorry, we just can't find that one! -

We're sorry, the URL https://www.instructables.com/href=%22/you/inbox is either incorrect or no longer available. Maybe you are looking for one of the following Instructables below.

I managed to read the message with the method I wrote above. You said "test message"

If you mean a Private Message (PM) within the site, check your emails - copies of PMs get sent to the email address you have set on your profile, and they show the body of the message as well as the title.

it is a PM and I got a copy in my email, but my instructables profile shows one new message in my inbox. Since the subject is missing I can't open it and remove the notification of a new message

Use the check box on the right. You can press it, then scroll down, then press delete.
