I was up to sending a very long message, about 90,000 characters, to a friend, I tried several times but I got an error sending the message.

Finally, I think part of my message was sent because I could see the characters in my message list under my friend's name.

When I clicked the name to see my whole message it wouldn't load the message. And now I can't access any of my messages and I get this message from Facebook:

Sorry, messages are temporarily unavailable. Please try again in a few minutes.

How can I get access to my messages and conversations again?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

I have tried IE 9, Firefox 13.0.1, and Google Chrome, non of them can load my message. – Ehsan Mamakani Jul 7 '12 at 14:55
That happens sometimes because Facebook is having error in their part.I have experienced that a lot.You just have to wait for Facebook to fix it. – ahmed Jul 7 '12 at 18:26
Well I have been waiting for about three days, now I can access the message list, but when I click on the name of that fiends of mine who I sent that long message to, I get the message of "messages are temporarily unavailable, please try again in a few minutes." is it probable that I can't access my conversation anymore? – Nobody Jul 8 '12 at 7:16
