Private messages just stay in the Outbox

Post by welshsteve » Wed Nov 12, 2008 11:21 am

Hi everyone. I'm new to managing forums. I have set one up for a site I run, but the Priavte Messaging function doesn't appear to be working correctly. I private message I sent yesterday is still in the Outbox. Are there any specific settings that need changing because I can't find anything? Private messaging is enabled in the admin panel.
Regards

Steve

When you write a PM it goes into the outbox until the recipient reads it.
Then it moves into the sent box.
This allows you to delete or edit it before they read it if you've changed your mind.
