Message in Outbox [stays there till recipient opens Inbox]

Post by adrianlaw »

Hi,

I'm attempting to send a message through the site and they are getting stuck in the outbox. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!
Adrian

The messages in your outbox are only disappearing is the person you're sending them to is willing to open them. Until then, they just remain in your outbox.

Opening the Inbox I assume; I don't think Sent can be taken as read?

As far as I understand, the message really had to be opened by the recipient before it disappears from your outbox.

Actually, when the recipient is notified, the message is still in the Outbox. I was thinking is stayed in the Outbox until the recipient actually opened the PM, but thecoalman is saying that is not true. I just tested it, and it is true the message moves to "Sent" when the recipient opens their Inbox.
(there are enough forum users who don't bother opening their Inbox when browsing the forum like ever... :rofl: )

Indeed. I've got one message in my outbox that's been there since 2018, even though the recipient still visits the forum nearly every day. :lmao:
