Private messages just hanging in outbox. Why???

Post by BHakluyt » Wed Aug 14, 2019 6:47 am

Why does my replies to private messages just hang in my outbox and not go out to the recipient? I'm talking about the forum messaging here. Please help?

I went to recipiant, it means the recipiant haven't read it (or maybe just that the recipiant haven't logged into the forum since you sent it)

99% sure the recipient has to actually click on the message, not just log in.

PM management is very counterintuitive. It's not like an email you "send", it's more like a forum post you share with the recipient.
When the PM is "sent", it accessible in the outbox.
Once it's read, it's accessible in the "sent messages".
