I have serious issues just posting and sometimes just give up

For some mad reason if I post a single letter that posts fine then I can edit the post ok

I believe it stays in your outbox until the receiver has read the message.

Surely if it's in your outbox, then it hasn't been sent, so how can the receiver view it???

Mine are just sat in my outbox???

If they are sat in your outbox the person your sending them to hasn't been online yet to receive them, sometimes my messages take days to go out my outbox.. I'm sure somebody in the know can confirm but if the other persons inbox is full they might not be able to receive the message until they clear their inbox.

As has been said, they only show as "sent" when the recipient reads it. Its not like email, so sitting in your "outbox" is not the same as sitting on your email server; everything is on ONE host, the recipient can see it, and thats the way the forum software works. Dont worry, its as "sent" as it can be until they read it :)

'Sent' should be re-named 'Read' really.
