    What version are you running? And have you tried a totally default style?
    Intriguing. Chances are in my case it's from an old template if it was added during the life of 3.x.

    Doesn't matter for me since I'm on 4.x now and it shows up for me on there. TBH I never knew that option even existed, though I still like my DIY script anyway. Be interesting to know why the OP cannot see it though.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that section might be vB4 only.

    It's on my 4.1.3 board but looking at the final "mirror" I kept of 3.8.6 before upgrading, it isn't there.

    That only shows ones that are waiting in moderation, though... (which is 0).

    Spammers tend to target inactive accounts for these messages, so they rarely get noticed....

    You could run this query to view all Visitor Messages:

    SELECT postusername, pagetext FROM visitormessage;

    I wrote a nifty little script that does this, it shows the last 20 messages.
    It doesn't filter private VMs though so it has to be admin only.

    LOL. Not likely with 20k+ members. :P Consider this a request for that feature.

    Other than checking for Moderated Visitor Messages in the Admin CP, there is no specific function for that except to go through user profiles one by one.

    Hmmm... strange. Any ideas how to track down spam posted by users as visitor messages, then?
