PMs Stuck In Outbox

Postby RevJB » Sat, Aug 01 2009, 09:19 AM

I tried to send a PM last night and it was still sitting in my outbox this am. Deleted it and sent it again and it is still sitting. I also tried to a different person and it is also still sitting there. I have successfully sent PMs to these same individuals previously.

I had the same problem, John, and it turned out that the PM left the outbox and moved into the Sent box after the recipient opened it. Seemed a little odd to me, but there you go.

that's it...

It doesn't consider something sent until it has been picked up. Think of it as confirmation that your message was really read.

That's the way they designed it in phpbb, which is what the board is based on...
