Private messages don't send

Post by jowdurt » Mon Jun 22, 2020 6:09 pm

When I type up a Private Message it goes to my outbox and stays. Cannot get it to go to the sent box. Sent a msg to forum admin and the response back seemed to be robotic with no information.

Thanks in advance if you know what I am doing wrong or can fix this for me.

Most sites, using "PMs", show in the "out" box until the individual it is sent to reads it, at which time it then shows "sent"

Steve, I had that problem once. My PM "box" was full. I could not send or receive until I emptied it or reduced the number of PMs.

My PM outbox has two messages that I want to send. Otherwise, empty.

Not sure how other sites function, just would like to be able to use the function here.

Steve, when you send a PM it goes to the Outbox folder and remains there until the person you sent it to reads it. If it's setting in the Outbox that just means it's unread. If it's about something discussed in a forum post you can post that you have sent them a PM. A lot of us have a habit of looking at the posts and don't notice the indicator in the top right hand that we have a message.
