Are you sure the recipient has read the message? Or that they still exist? I think I currently have a test-message hung up because the user was deleted.

Your PM's will show in the "Outbox" until the recipient(s) read them. Then they will show up in "Sent messages".

No, but I dont think they would hang in the outbox would they? They should be sent either way ya?

They won't disappear from "Outbox" until the recipient(s) read them. I've had a PM sitting in my Outbox for over 2 weeks now, but I know that's because the recipient doesn't log in often.

Ok... That works. I figured they would go and be gone. Thank you both for the knowledge. Bill... Want to alter this?

I actually find it pretty useful. For example, if you're tentatively discussing a trip with somebody via pm, you get a better idea of where those plans are at and if you should look for something else. If you don't know whether or not the recipient has read the message, then you end up in a bind Friday night when you're looking to climb something Saturday.

While that really pisses me off, and it does... If the PM manager says it is going to be sent, that tells me that it is not yet sent.

Again, PMs sit in the Outbox until they are read by the recipient.

That's just the way the authors wrote the forum software.

I didn't realize that was such a common forum topic. I must miss all those threads. :shock:
