private messages that are not sent

Post by Harrison76 » Wed Jul 04, 2018 4:48 pm

hello to everyone, a user tells me that he can't send private messages. Then I tried with my admin account, and I can't invite them either. In practice when I try to send a private message to a user, it seems that everything is ok, but instead of sending it and moving the message in "sent messages", I find it in "outgoing messages". What is the reason for this and how can I solve it? The forum is this https://www.forumelettrico.it/forum/ Thank you

Messages in the outbox are pms that have been posted but not yet opened, once opened they go to sent messages.

I should add, the reason it works this way is that while the pm hasn’t been opened you can go back and edit or delete it.

and they never really "go" anywhere. they are in the same spot in the database, I believe that only the "flag" for read or unread is changed.
