When do PMs get sent by the Forum?

Post by AllanP » Sun Sep 08, 2019 7:56 pm

This may or may not be related, but when do PMs get sent by the Forum?

I composed a PM to another member about 3 hours ago, but I notice it's sitting in my PM Outbox, not in my PM Sent list...
I don't have to do anything specific after composing the PM and hitting submit do I?

Just wondering if notification delays might somehow be connected?

A PM sits in the Outbox until its recipient reads it.

Ah! Thanks for clarifying that.
(All this time on the forum and hadn't realised how that worked.... :oops:

The Outbox how the forum lets you know that the person you sent the PM to has not yet logged in and read the PM.

I'm going to get the PM-related posts split off into a second topic, as they might be useful to someone else who finds the same thing confusing.
