PM sent but it's still in my 'Outbox'

Post by Dormy » Sat Apr 07, 2012 2:23 pm

I sent a PM a week ago or so to another forum member. The PM is still in my 'outbox' rather than in 'sent messages' ? Unfortunately, I can see from the members profile he hasn't been active since before I sent the PM :o so obviously I haven't had a reply :shrug:

Thanks
Ian

Right, it seems that that's intentional, the message stays in your Outbox until the recipient has read it. At which point it'll be moved into your "Sent messages" folder.
This gives you chance to edit or delete a message that hasn't been received yet.

It is a bit confusing, but that's the way it's supposed to work. I don't think I'll be able to change the functionality, but I'll add in a line of explanation somewhere on the PM page.

Hope that helps,
Patrick

Hi,

Is this still the case......that a mail,sits in your outbox until read by the recipient?

I have 4 PM's sat in my outbox at present.... Seems a little odd.

Hi Paul,
That should be what happens, it's a bit odd but the idea is that the message goes into Outbox until it's read - then it moves into 'Sent messages'.
Have the 4 people you've sent messages to posted anything recently?

Hi Patrick
Thanks for the reply. Got it - indeed a little strange :stars: but understood now!

Reply to from one (Michiel) so presume that Mick is out and about - haven't seen any recent posts from him.

Thanks again
Paul
