Can't reply to a PM

Postby pedalpower » 10 Feb 2007, 8:59am

I'm currently trying to a PM but when I submit it it says it has been sent but goes to my outbox and does not appear in my sent box.

That is how it works . .
Having pressed the SUBMIT button the new PM will appear in the OUTBOX.
Once the receiver has opened it, you will then see it in the SENTBOX.
This seems to be way it shows you if the message has been read by the recipient.

I had to run a test to work it out. But the manual says :
4.3.3: The Outbox

When you send a PM, the message goes to your Outbox. It remains in the Outbox until the recipient visits his/her Inbox, at which point it is moved from your Outbox to their Inbox. While the message remains in your Outbox you may edit or delete your post if you like. The message remains in your control until it is received.

Graham,

VMTs for clearing that up. Obviously I'm a technobiff.
