Default account mail bug?

i have an account mail i started where i mail my self with unit vs unit ratios, or interesting BR that i gather over the course of a round, im on my 5message (4th reply) to myself,

and i get told:

Either that nickname was not found, or that person is ignoring you. Message sending failed. when i try to message myself.(by clicking reply)

I can create a whole new mail simply enough. but ideally id like the ratios all on one mail. hence the use of the reply function ( there are ways around it. i know this) but just woundered why it was happening?

did you at any point change your nickname since you originally authored the first note?

haha no. because i sent myself the info i wanted in a brand new mail, and it worked. only the reply (4th reply) failed.

could it be the length of the text gettting to big to send?

that's quite bizarre.

When i had trouble with the ingame messaging system when the new one came out (for age 5 iirc) when i had reached the maximum number of characters you could still send mails, but they just were cut off at the max char limit. So theoretically it shouldn't be the case that you can simply not mail yourself.

I've done some testing and further more.... anything in my account mail dated before

"Fri 29th May, 2009. 19:04:58 GMT" sent to me by anyone (not just me messaging myself).... i cannot reply to.

either that or charlie_b, gadfly, and cheese/pinky are all ignoring me and its just coincidence.

is this an age 5 thing?
any one else experience anything similar. Or is it only me that keeps old account mails

(obviously not a major issue. As you can c&p into new message and send it. just odd i thought)

Ahhhhhh yeah of course, the switchover from usernames to email addresses, well worked out detective willy

Basically mails themselves "stored" the username of the person to mail (in the background - invisible to you so you couldn't see people's usernames, only their nicks) - this was the method used to allow replies to always reach the right recipient even if the recipient changed their nicknames. With Age 5, usernames changed from usernames to just the email addresses - but I neglected to update this record in account mails... so when you reply to mails pre-age-5, you're trying to reply to a username, not an email - which doesn't exist!
