I think it's because of the update, but I cannot see my messages anymore. I sent one just before the turn change, now I think I just missed it...  :'(
Now with the Skovgaard Family... and it's gone.

Do you mean you cannot see a message you sent in your Sent Messages page?

No, any message. On my work desktop or on the smartphone. With every char.

I did a dumb. Forgot to actually add the new tables required for the new features.

Added them. Please try again.

Scout reports shared through the attachments when sending a 'Report' message look very odd under this new system. Really just a blank message with the attached scoutings under the character names. Overall, I think the new system is an improvement, but this just looks strange. I'm not sure whether anything can be done to make it look a bit more elegant.

I think the easiest way to make it more elegant (from my perspective) would be to prohibit empty messages.

I'd rather not, though. Entering text is extra hassle on mobile. Pops up the keyboard, which on older mobiles or ones funking out can bog things down.

Maybe the game can auto-generate a very generic message for letters that have attachments but no text? "Here are some reports", or something along those lines.

Being the annoying one, the personal messages are without borders now... it can be annoying to find what's personal, what's realmwide, etc...

Which is fair enough. But it would probably just be people writing 'Scout Reports', or something like that. It's really just an aesthetic issue about how it all looks. If, as Chenier reports, it causes problems on mobile to write messages, it's probably best not to prohibit empty messages. People will probably get used to the new look reports.

Yes, and I think Delvin is already aware of this.
But you are right, I have a hard time spotting the difference as well  :)
