New User Question: Outbox vs Sent messages

Postby TheNameOfTheGame » Wed Aug 01, 2012 5:23 am

Hello,

In my control panel I have 3 messages in my outbox and 1 in my sent messages.

Are the ones in the outbox actually sent? I don't know the difference between outbox and sent, sorry.

Thanks for any help.

From my observation of the PM, it seems that it have staged the posting for collection by the recipient.
So it sits in your outbox, waiting to be collected. As such it is not "sent out".

the pm system on this board is very weird.

sent messages go in your 'outbox' until the recipient logs in and checks their messages, then they will dissapear from your outbox. Quite why it's setup differently to every email client ever, is anyones guess :D

It's not a "real" email system per say.
It's more like a private forum where only those in the list gets membership.
It's logical to just extend the forum system for this rather than writting a new "real" email system.

no, still waiting for sending.
actually, if you see a message in your outbox, it means that the recipient has received but not read your message yet.
and you are still able to edit that message
