As Designed "The requested conversation could not be found."

    Today I found out that when a conversation exists, but if you're not allowed to read this, you get this message: "The requested conversation could not be found."

    Wouldn't it be better to have 2 different error messages?
    - "You are not a participant of this conversation."
    - "The requested conversation could not be found."

    This is intentional, to not necessarily leak the existence of a conversation versus one that you can't view.

    That is pretty smart...

    so if someone was spamming url links to find a msg they would have no clue if a url was actually linked to a convo?
