PMs stuck in outbox

Postby troporobo » Sun May 30, 2010 8:13 pm

I'm having trouble with PMs getting stuck in the outbox - they never get sent for some reason. It doesn't happen all the time, or to the same users. But about half of them never go out. What am I doing wrong?

They sit there until the recipient opens your pm in his inbox,
Or are you saying some of your recipients are not told that they have a message in their inbox?

I think they don't actually go to the recipient somehow

The way an outbox is implemented in forums is that they're a pickup point. It doesn't get "delivered" so unless the recipient reads it, it will stay there.

OK, thanks for letting me know how it works. Guess I'll have to collect a few more CP numbers for these difficult cases!
