Private messages in Outbox

Post by Triple digit golfer » Thu Nov 30, 2017 8:44 am

I composed and "sent" a private message yesterday and this morning it is still in my outbox. This lengthy delay is the norm. How long should it take for PM's to be sent to the recipient?

They are sent immediately. The question is: How long does it take before the recipient reads your message? Your message stays in your Outbox until the message is read by the receiver.

This question gets periodically asked and answered because it doesn't function like email clients.

This isn't surprising. My PM notifications come to an email address that I only check once a week or so.
