Normally when I use the PM function on this site my sent message goes into my sent box. Today all the messages I am sending are appearing in my "out" box. No matter how often I hit "submit" the message winds up there. This has happened with both a reply and a new message. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? Shocked This is driving me crazy.

It's been a while since I've PMd anyone on this board, but if I remember correctly, the post will only appear in the "sent" box once the reciever has read it. Until then it's in the "out" box.

If I'm wrong, please correct me! Smile

I thought this is the case. ;)

I was surprized and a bit dismayed myself when I first realized that this is how the PM works here. I'm in the habit of sometimes taking my time in answering e-mails etc. so at first it bothered me that the sender could see when I'd read that message they'd sent me. It then seemed a bit impolite to not have answered right away. But it is undoubtedly quite a handy feature when you're sending messages, because you know your message has been read and not disappeared into the ether.

Thanks! The only other place I have pm'd that wasn't the case so I was very confused. This was really helpful. Thanks for the responses.
