 Post subject: PMs not sending?
PostPosted: Wed Dec 03, 2008 11:30 am 
Firstly, sorry about posting this in the forum, but for obvious reasons I can't PM an administrator.

Basically, I've had a couple of PMs stuck in my outbox since 11pm yesterday, and they don't seem interested in actually heading for their intended recipients (Helios). Is there any cause for this you might know of, like maybe there's no room in the inbox on the recipient's side or something? I'm not massively familiar with the intricacies of phpBB3.

Cheers in advance.

PMs will sit in your Outbox until such time as they have been read so it could be just that Helios hasn't read them yet. If she hasn't even seen them yet then it might be that her Inbox is full.

Try dropping me a PM since I know I have space in my Inbox at the moment.

I'd have thought that they went to Sent Items, rather than languishing in the outbox. Maybe that's just me.

In any case, PM sent.

They become Sent once read, until then they are in the Outbox (and can still be edited). This system means that you can see if a message has been read by its recipient yet. If it still in the Outbox, it remains unread.

Then does that mean I'm up for the "Dubya" award, for most clueless forumgoer?

Seriously though, thanks for the explanation.

Yeah, sorry about that Ninje - while I do normally hang around the forums like a bored ghost (and thus pick up most PMs within minutes of being sent them), I went to bed stupidly early last night with a headache, then overslept this morning, so didn't see your messages until about 10am.

Incidentally, a useful thing to know about the outbox status is that you can go back and edit stuff before the person reads them, in case you make vital typos or ever send something that you suddenly think 'that could be completely misinterpreted, oh no!'.
Once the message has been read though, you can't edit it, obviously.

And finally, I do try to keep my inbox as clear as possible by making other folders to put important stuff in. So there shouldn't be any worries about things getting through to me. :)
