PM stuck in Outbox. Help?

Post by UndeadDan » Thu May 18, 2017 5:09 pm

I've had a PM stuck in my outbox for a few hours now. I can't figure out what I'm supposed to do to set it free to seek its intended recipient.

Help B-Town folks, you are my only hope. Until I get frustrated and bug Plarz on FB that is.

From the FAQ:
viewtopic.php?f=40&t=262531

1. Why are my messages stuck in my Outbox?

They are not “stuck.” Messages will remain in your Outbox until they are read by the recipient (or one of the recipients, if there is more than one). From there, the message will move to your “Sent messages” folder.

Thanks! and sorry. It's been years since I've sent a PM on here and apparently reading the FAQ back in 2010 wasn't enough.:)

The Outbox is also a great way to keep track of communication. If you send a message and don't hear back for a little while, you can check the Outbox to see if the person has read it or not. If they haven't, they're probably just busy. It's a good guide on whether or not to send a reminder, followup PM.
