I'm trying to reply to two pms and my replies are just sitting in my outbox. I had to send email replies. Am I doing something wrong?

I think they stay in the outbox until open by the recipient, when they get moved to the sent messages folder.

That's it. The recipient has to retrieve the message. Some don't check regularly or notice they've received a PM. If expecting to receive messages, check regularly, especially important if someone has posted FS or Wanted items.

Okay. M Seems weird that someone gets a message that is still in my outbox. Thanks for the lesson!

PMs move from outbox to sent when they are read.

It gets even odder. The recipient might have seen the message if they get email notifications. Then the PM gets emailed to them and they can read it, but it still doesn't get moved out of your outbox.

The system does not receive feedback from external email deliveries. The software can only detect if a member views your PM through the forum system. Until that happens, the message remains in the outbox.

As noted above, many members receive email notifications of PMs. The member can reply via email, but that reply is not included in the forum system. That reply may also be sent with your email address header. If you wish to keep your email address private, only use the forum system to send and reply to PMs.
