Messaging on this Site

Post by amerital43 » 14 Aug 2012, 07:33

Can anyone please explain to me why I can never get a message out to another on this site? I can't even get it to a Moderator/Admin!! The messages don't go to their intended person, they just collect in my Outbox. This is very frustrating and annoying. If someone can tell me about this and how to get them moving from the Outbox I would appreciate it.

The messages will stay in your outbox until the recipient picks up the message. There is a notification to the recipient that there is a message in their inbox, but until they open it... it is not considered sent. Once opened it will be placed in your sent box.

Oh, is that how it works?! Thank you for telling me that. I feel so much better because I thought there was a glitch of some sort, or I wasn't doing something extra.
O.K., well then I guess I just have to wait.
