Why are all the PMs that I am sending going to the outbox and not the sent folder? I don't think the people I am trying to contact are getting them.

Outbox means they haven't been read yet. It allows you to edit them and delete them if you'd like.

Once the intended party reads the message it transfers to your sent folder.

Gotcha I thought that might be the case but wanted to double check. Thanks!

Just curious.....sometimes when I send a PM it is delivered immediately, and other times it sits in my "outbox" for a couple of days. Any reason for this?

Thanks for the insight!

If it's in the outbox it means they didn't open it yet, but it will be in their inbox.

Something else to look at is when the member you sent the PM too last logged on, maybe they haven't been onto EB for awhile and have yet to see the PM.

From the FAQ

http://expressobeans.com/wiki/index.php/FAQ



What is the difference between the "Outbox" and the "Sentbox" in the EB Private Messaging system?

A Private Message stays in the Outbox until the recipient opens it, after which it automatically moves to the Sentbox.

Thank you. Now that makes sense why they are sitting in the Outbox!
