Does PM work?

Postby Will » Thu Jan 01, 2009 9:23 pm

I have tried to send a couple of Private Messages and they seem to sit in the Outbox. When I check the Sent Messages, there is nothing there?

Greetings Will,

They do work.

Although... I'm not entirely certain on the process behind it, the messages go to the Outbox immediately after being sent, and after an unknown amount of time, they seem to move automatically to the Sent folder.

Hi Will... I got your test PM.

Looks like even though the categorisation of sent mail isn't intuitive, the send mechanism definitely works.

Greetings Will,

Possibly. Once I understand precisely how it works, I'll come back and post... however I doubt you'll need to resend it. Any that I have sent have worked, and always worked their way to the Sent Box in time. Possibly (and this just a guess), "Outbox" means it hasn't been collected. You could test this by checking the status of the PM you sent to me.

Greetings Will,

That depends on whether its perceived as a 'problem'... if the differentiation is simply that the Outbox has yet to be collected, it saves anyone needing to put 'read receipts' on PMs to know whether they're opened or not.
