"Internal Server Error" when trying to send a PM

After hitting "submit" to send a PM I get this page showing up:
Occurs in firefox as well as chrome - any idea what's up?

It's still happening.
I can receive but can't send PM's.
Anybody know why?

Is your box full? Check your sent folder as well.

Thanks Ned.

I checked both and deleted a few messages.
Still got the error but then tried on another computer and sending PM's worked.
Sounds like it's something on my end.

Wish I know what is causing the error on the other computer as it's the one I use all the time. Getting the error started about a week back.
Nothing newly installed on that computer (at least none that I know of).

That is very strange. Cookies turned on?

Last night sending PM's on the main computer started working again.

Yes cookies have been turned on the whole time.

Only thing I did was remove some programs from the Windows startup list then rebooted the computer.
Removed three Apple apps/ programs and two that were googleupdate related.
(all Apple programs were icloud related -icloud isn't something I/we use.
Not sure how they got there unless itunes installed them during an update to itunes.)

In any case maybe one of these 'startup' programs was the cause?

I can't imagine that's it but you never know.
