WARNING: Outbox Gone Wild!

Post  nancym on Wed Dec 02, 2009 7:44 pm

I just discovered 4 Private Messages "caught" in my Outbox, apparently due to some kind of maintenance holdup in September and November. It never even occurred to me to check an Outbox in an online forum! Why would we have such a thing anyway? Apparently just to catch messages that get caught in maintenance glitches, I guess.

Anyway, my 4 PMs were not of massive importance, mainly about moved threads. I'll forward them on to those individuals concerned, even though I have to assume they all figured it out by now! Sorry for any inconvenience.

But also, if anyone has sent any PM's and never got a reply, you might all want to check your Outbox on this forum to make sure the messages actually got sent!

I think I figured out the reason for this Outbox thing, maybe. It seems messages are left in our Outbox until someone logs in and actually opens their message area. The early ones that were "stuck" may have been because of some kind of maintenance tie-up, but I've noticed recently that all messages stay there for undetermined lengths of time and then selectively get moved to Sent. So I'm assuming that is how this little feature works, though I've been too lazy to actually check out the facts on the web!

Anyway, for anyone who logs in occasionally who might not have their sound up to hear that funny little "boink" that indicates you have a private message, please check your messages to see if there are any there on a regular basis.
