I've got a message sent to me from a moderator which appears in the top-left notification dropdown box.

Clicking on the "item" brings me to a page where the message is shown. But after reading it I've closed the browser tab.

How can I get to the message page again?

i definitely had the link in the notification bar (if you mean the bar at the top of the page) but of course its not there anymore.. – Pacerier Jun 12 '11 at 2:51
the email give me a link: which is working. So am i expected to keep that mail in my inbox for as long as I'd wish to "go back to that page next time"? – Pacerier Jun 12 '11 at 3:02

@random nop.. it only shows the activities of the threads.. i.e. replies and comments – Pacerier Jun 12 '11 at 12:45
So there's no special way to see it without having to go to our email or notifications? – puretppc Jan 19 '14 at 22:42
@puretppc: the global inbox does show moderator messages. – Dan Dascalescu Feb 24 '14 at 18:50
@DanDascalescu Yeah but it's gonna be hard digging through lots of activity especially users who are very active – puretppc Feb 25 '14 at 1:15
@puretppc: trues. You can vote on this request to implement inbox filters. – Dan Dascalescu Feb 25 '14 at 2:12

As of Feb 2014, you can see moderator messages in the global StackExchange inbox, if you scroll down to the "more inbox messages..." link:

Once in the inbox though, there's no way to filter for "moderator message". You'll have to go through the paging buttons and maybe try to aim for the point in time at which you remember receiving the message. That might be difficult because the year is not displayed.

Doesn't seem to work anymore. Do you still see the "moderator" messages in the global inbox? – Pacerier Dec 19 '14 at 21:39
