PM Outbox vs Sent

Post by IanB » Jul 14th, '07, 11:04

In the messages page:
I am wondering what is the difference between an "Outbox" and a "Sent" box, when there is no "Send and Receive" facility?

Not sure - i have one message in my outbox - maybe the outbox shows message that have not been sent successfully? All my other messages sent are in the sent items folder.

I am beginning to think that messages in the outbox are ones which have not been read by the recipient.

Ian,

I think it is the same as in Outlook. In the Outbox are e-mails that have not been sent. Double click on the e-mail and do a resend. They could be sitting there, because you logged out before it was sent.

yep, they stay in the outbox until the intended recipient actually looks at them ie it's different to Outlook.

Once the reader reads it, it heads on across to the sent box.
