Private Messages stuck?

Post by Theseus » Thu Aug 09, 2018 6:00 pm

I am not sure if my PMs are going out. I have sent/replied to 3 PMs. And they show in the Outbox. Since the recipient never sent a message ackonledging that they received the response, I am wondering if they are going out or not. How do I check if they have actually been sent? If they were sent they should show up in the Sent box instead of the Outbox. How do I fix this?

PM's stay in your Outbox until the recipient opens them. Then they move to your Sent folder.

If I delete a PM sent to me without opening it, will it move to the sender’s Sent folder?

Let's do a test - I'll send you a PM, you don't open it but delete it, I'll check my Sent File - and we'll report back to the boss :D

Edit - done at 10:58 eastcoast time 8-)

It means the recipient is ignoring you, LOL.

Well, in the case that I am thinking about, I was the ignorer...

Done!
My PM to Delamer is now in my Sent box, meaning it moved from my Outbox to my Sent box. I guess that means I now know that Delamer retrieved my private message - but doesn't tell me Delamer deleted it as opposed to read it.

What a shame, it contained all my secret passwords to my vast fortune :wink:

Just my luck; my PowerBall tickets never pay off either!

Thanks.
