Why do PM's get stuck in the Outbox?

#1 Post by HandyDan » Mon Feb 25, 2013 5:52 am

Anyone else have this issue? Sometimes they get stuck for a little while, sometimes a day or two.

I don't see an obvious way to release them. I have room in my sent box so what gives?

I had this issue last week, but my sent message box was full. I haven't sent any since emptying it, so not sure if I'm still having the problem.

Here is the reason.....

SENT MESSAGES will appear in either the OUTBOX or the SENT MESSAGES folder.

As long as the recipient(s) have not yet read the message, it will stay in the OUTBOX.

As soon as someone reads the message it will be archived to the SENT MESSAGES folder.

If the administrator allows it, you can edit messages after sending them as long as they are in the OUTBOX and the recipients have not yet read them.

Bottom line, they go fast, but look like they sit there until someone opens it or reads it.
