Messages Stuck In Outbox

Post by JamJay » Wed Sep 05, 2012 12:13 pm

I'm trying to PM a couple of members on here however, the replies I'm trying to send to their messages are stuck in Outbox and have not sent in over a day.

What's the deal?

It means they haven't read them yet. They leave your outbox once read.

i think this is normal until the other user logs in and reads their message.

Is this definitely the case? I've had this happen and a couple of messages from a couple of years ago are still sitting there!

Yes correct. That person hasn't read it for over a year. I would guess if you look them up. Thier last log on date will be before the message date

I have a message in my outbox that has actually been replied to by the recipient, so would imagine he had probably read it! :)

Some people fail to see the little icons at the top with numbers on them when you have a new message.

Some people don't request an email to be sent when a new PM arrives.

Some people register on the site with one off emails that they never visit again.

If they're read on Crapatalk, the main board can't cope and says they're still unread.

I've had loads sat in my Outbox that have definitely been replied to.
