Why Do Messages Get Stuck in the Outbox?

I have messages that keep getting stuck in the Outbox, and don’t get sent. How do I fix this?

They stay there until the receiver reads them. Nothing you can do.

KT is correct.

Consider it your read receipt. When you send a PM, the PM goes into your outbox and sits there until the recipient reads it, where it then goes into your sent box. This is working as intended and will most likely never be changed.

I've locked this one, so no more comments can be made to it.
I'm also going to pin it, because it's a question we get here often that can be found with a search. This might make it easier for people in the future.

Want my help with a BTR or backout? All messages sent/posted should be in CHRONOLOGICAL order. Otherwise, I just won't read it.
