PMs stuck in Outbox, not sending

Postby thekinn » Fri Oct 15, 2010 11:50 am

For some reason the private messages that I am sending are going to my Outbox, but are not sending. Is there a trick to get them to go out?

Thanks,

From what I know, they will sit there until they are picked up by the recipient.

I think you're right. I did a round trip test with thekinn which seemed to confirm this.

if anyone still has issues with PMs here, though, let me know.

Just last week I had one sit in my outbox for three days, and I know the recipient logged in because he sent me another message, asking why I didn't respond.
I believe in sharing the road with other drivers.
They can have the part behind me.

I'm assuming logging in isn't sufficient but rather that the recipient must actually open/view the message in question. but I gotta admit, it seems unlikely that someone would get so far as to send you another message without actually checking his inbox...

I'll keep a note of this, but I'm not sure how to troubleshoot it more. if it comes up again, maybe you can let me know? I can at least check logs and so forth then.

apparently (according to the phpbb people), private messages will stay in the out box until the recipient opens them. you can still edit and/or delete a message up until they open it. once it's been read, it should move to your sent messages box.

if you know that the recipient has opened it, and yet it's still in your out box, then there's a problem. otherwise, it's normal/expected behavior.
