return all the messages with profile returned

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/MySQL/Q_28283780.html#a39619770
Currently this query returns one row of sender, message_id

| SENDER | MESSAGE_ID |
|--------|------------|
|    abl | 3609276896 |


I would like to see all the rows of messages with profile_id 'abl'

Because when I check results, I have to type select * from a_messages where profile_id='abl'

"nest" the previous query as a subquery, join back to messages via sender (so all sender messages get included), order the results as you like
SELECT
*
FROM (
      SELECT
              m.sender
            , m.message_id
      FROM (
            SELECT
              profile_id
            , min(message_id) AS message_id
            FROM a_messages2
            GROUP BY
              profile_id
           ) AS mn
      INNER JOIN a_messages2 AS m ON mn.message_id =  m.message_id
      WHERE m.profile_id = m.sender
     ) AS CK
INNER JOIN a_messages2 AS m2 ON ck.sender =  m2.sender 
ORDER BY
        m2.profile_id
      , m2.message_id ASC 
;

PortletPaulCommented:
the "alias" CK is defined on line 19

it is then referenced in the next line "ON ck.sender..." see the ck?

perhaps try making the "alias" in lower case, so change line 19 to this:

         ) AS ck

PortletPaulCommented:
by the way "ck" is my abbreviation for check

you can choose your own aliases, just change the ck to something you prefer

lowercase ck works great.
Thanks

Thanks for your query.

I have a related query where I would want to see all the messages (the messages I sent and received-- not just received)
