Sent PM going to "outbox"

Post by JL13 » Sun Jan 31, 2016 11:28 am

I'm trying to reply to PM but it's going to my outbox rather than "sent message". I tried again and same result. I feel like an idiot.

That's because the recipient hasn't read it yet. Once that happens, it will disappear from the outbox.

I've had PMs hanging in my outbox for weeks, presumably because they were sent to lurkers who never log in so they don't see that they have mail waiting.

For those who aren't aware, you can enable a notification so that when you receive a PM you get an email.
