Private message outbox

Post by jamescroft » 2014/11/06 20:49:11

Anyone elses pm's going into their outbox instead of sent?

How long does this take, I don't have all day to wait for my PM to send? This is ridiculous.

The PM stays in Outbox until the message has been read by the receiver. At that point the message will be moved to Sent messages. It's working as designed, there's no need to get annoyed about this.

OK thanks! There should be a tracking subsection in the PM area instead, however, sort of like a thing that you can use to view if someone has read the message yet.
Could be an option for any VIP donation users.

Feel free to submit your suggestion to the phpBB folks. The way it works here is how it works on all phpBB discussion forums.

The reason for the Outbox vs. Sent difference is probably that you can edit the messages that are still in your Outbox, but you can't edit messages that are in Sent.

Oh ok, I wasn't even thinking about all that. I use another forum which is MyBB, and did not remember there was even different types of forums available.
Anyway thanks, you may close the thread if needed
