Outbox/Sent PM happening?

Post by skyler.robbins »

Hello,
I've sent a couple of messages and it looks like it may be stuck in the Outbox?
When I check the Sent folder, it reads 0%
When I check the Outbox folder, it has 2 sitting there.
Just checking to see if that part of the forum is working.

Thanks!
Robert

Robert -

I had the same question a while back. I was told that they remain as a notation in your outbox until the other person reads them. Kind of weird, but in a way, it's like a read-return indication!

Yes, they stay in the outbox until the person picks them up and reads them.

I kinda like it because I know when Kurt is ignoring me!!! :lol:

I just wanted to bump this back up because I am continuing to have questions about this. The PM will stay in the outbox until the person reads it. Its a nice feature because you know they got it but it does cause some initial confusion.

I strongly suggest that everyone goes to their Notification Options and selects "email" under "someone sends you a private message". Go to: ucp.php?i=ucp_notifications&mode=notification_options and select email for PM's. That wya you will get notified when someone PM's you.

I hope this helps!!!
