Why Are There Private Messages Stuck In My "Outbox"

Post by JoshInAtlanta »

I notice a fair amount of people comment that their private messages seem to be "broken."

Problem: "My messages are stuck in the outbox and I am panicking because I really HAVE to get this E28 part first! Why is it not in the sentbox?"

Cause: Your messages will stay in the outbox until the recipient has opened the message. There is no need to panic. Chances are next time that member logs in they will be alerted/notice a new private message and it will move to the sentbox once they open it.

ALSO, as long as a message is still in the outbox, you can check it and click the "Delete Marked" button and the recipient will never get the message.

You can also delete the message while its in your outbox and the recipient will never get the message.

In addition to deleting, you can also edit a PM while it's still in your Outbox.

That's what's really fun - deleting a message while it's in the Outbox. The recipient still gets notified and then posts that their PMs are busted.
