Why's my Outbox filling up?

Post by Doggy » Sun Oct 30, 2011 6:14 pm

Noticed I now have 5 messages in my Outbox, (which presumably means they're not reaching the intended recipients).

I understood that when you send a PM. it goes into the Outbox until the recipient reads it?

Thought it might be due to no space in Sent Messages, but I've deleted enough, so it's not that.

Realise they'll sit there until someone reads them, but I've got a bunch waiting that I'm fairly sure people are wanting to read.

Any ideas?

Yeah, I think that means that if it's sat in your outbox the recipient hasn't read it yet..

I think the problem is they're going to sit there forever because the people they've been sent to are no longer using the forum, so he wants to know how to get rid of them.

Correction guys - it's working OK.

Messages do sit there until read, it just seemed unlikely that several people had made a serious enquiries and not read the responses. :roll:
