Outbox

#1
Hi there

Is it necessary that sent messages (private messages area) go into "outbox" mode first?

A private message that I sent to some member has been in "outbox" all day and not arrived to him yet! Why?

How can this be fixed?

Thanks

When you send a private message it will sit in the Outbox until it is read by the recipient. Once it is actually opened by the recipient and read, it will then disappear from the Outbox.

So whenever you send a PM and you see it sitting in your Outbox for some time, this means it was sent and delivered already it's just waiting to be read.

I don't know why it was designed like that but it is just how it is with PhpBB forum software.

Hope this clears it up for you.

Haha don't worry I was confused about it too when I first tried to send a PM.

Have a good weekend man :ugeek:
