The Fodor's search has always worked for me. You can search on your e-mail address.

Hello Charlie,
The easiest way to keep track of your postings is to "bookmark" them.
Once you've written the question and posted it, or in your current situation, once you've found your already posted question and opened it up, place your mouse cursor over the posting, in the right half of the screen. Then right-click the mouse. A box should pop up. One of the choices might be "Add to Favorites" or there mightbe a choice with the word "Bookmark", depending on what kind of browser you use. Left-click on it, then another box comes up. You must change the name of the file. Each thing you bookmark must have its own, different name. For example, you could name them 'Question 1', 'Question 2', etc. Or you could name them 'Paris-transportation', 'Paris-restaurants', etc. Doesn't matter what you name them as long as each one has a different name. After you type in the new name, click OK.
To find the post later, just click on your Favorites icon and the list of files will drop down for you to choose from.
Another way to find your postings is to use Search, but I don't think you can search on your e-mail address, or anything in the heading or title of your posting. Some people always type their name or initials at the end of their post. That way, they can search on their own name.
Hope this helps you. If I see any of your posts farther down, I'll top them for you so you can bookmark them.
Have a lovely time in Paris!

P.S. I believe most of your recent postings have the word Paris in them, so do a text search on Paris. The results will include a LOT of posts that aren't yours, but there will be fewer to look through to find yours.
Since many people respond with a greeting using your name, as I did in my response above, you can try searching for the word Charlie.

You could always try putting a special phrase in all your posts so you can find them easily with a search (like sign off with Chalie123)

I think the best advice is to include at the bottom of your post your name or something to search by that is unique, as someone above suggested. You cannot search by your email address if you just put it in the box at the top (unfortunately), but if you put it at the bottom of your message, you could. Other than that, I think you have to just check the board quickly (at least once a day) to see if there are answers so your posts don't go to far back, if you don't bookmark them.
