PMs: Out box vs. Sent box

Unread post by Dana » Sun Jul 18, 2010 11:07 am

Hi Mike,

What is the difference between the Out box and the Sent box for PM? I've sent a message that appears to be stuck in limbo, only appearing in my Out box.

It means the person at the other end has never opened it. One of the few things I don't like about this template is that it doesn't call your attention more forcefully to the fact that you have a message.

Although you can mark your Profile "yes" for "Notify on New Private Message", and the system will send you an email.

Thanks folks,

If anyone knows Elif at the Filmmuseum can they notify that "you've got mail." Boy, does that date me!
