Private messages not being sent?

Post by Gumbotron » Mon Jul 08, 2013 5:27 pm

I have sent a few private messages of late and they are not going to my sent items, instead they are being stored in my outbox, is this the usual scenario? I have not payed much attention when sending pm's in the past so I am not to sure.

Alright, so it sat in the outbox for ages, but moved to sentbox at some point. I assume, that there is some kind of optimization reason for this and most likely once every X minutes the server deals with everyone's 'outbox' messages.

So hopefully by now, you should have no messages in the outbox and all in the sentbox... if it seems like they really are refusing to send even after waiting a while - let me know and I'll look into it further :)

Cheers,
Fraser

Had a quick look this morning and one of the pm's has moved from my outbox to the sent items box, but the others have not. Maybe the messages stay in the outbox until they are read by the recipient, and then they move to the sent items box.

That could quite possibly be it. I'll make a dummy account and test it out later today.

Yep, that was it :)

So outbox (as far as I can tell) means it hasn't been read - kinda useful to know.
