How do the Outbox and Sent Items work in the Private Message

Post by Chomas »

Sorry if this is a really obvious question. :oops:

I've just been asked the following question by a member of one of my forums:

"hiya, how do i get PM messages to go from my outbox to my sent items? i've got 3 just sat there..."

All PMs I've sent have gone straight into the Sent Items folder. I tried saving a message to see if that makes it go in the Outbox - it doesn't. So what's it for and how does it work? :?:

Thanks in advance. :)

pm's in the "outbox" are messages that have been sent but not read by the recipient. Once the recipient has read the message it will move the the senders "sent box" This allows you to keep track which messages you have sent have been read or not and also allows you to edit or delete the ones which have not yet been read
