Messages working?

Postby icarus » Wed Feb 11, 2009 4:22 am

I've attempted to send a message to one of the other forum users but it is staying in the Outbox and not going to the Sentbox.

Am I to assume that my messages are not working and the message has not been sent or has it been sent?

Based on my past experience, the message shows up in the "Sent" box only AFTER it is read by the recipient. Yes, I know, it is an odd process.

The way I figure it is that nothing is actually sent except notification to the recipient that he has a PM. And since most folks seem to TOTALLY ignore that little bitty "You have # new messages" message at the top of their page, sometimes they NEVER pick it up.

If there is a topic related to the PM, I suggest that you put a nice big bright message in that topic saying MemberX, READ YOU MESSAGES! or the like, huge type, red, etc. Just remember to erase it when he does.
