My PMs won't send

Post by mockingbird288z » 30 Oct 2014, 02:15

This happens on and off but I haven't been able to send a private message for awhile now. I can type one out and tap the send button but then the message just sits in the outbox and never sends. I hate that someone would think I don't care to reply to a pm!

Just to show, I sent this at 5:10pm my time and it is now after 10pm my time and the message is just there in the outbox it has not sent yet. I had one in the outbox for more than a day once before I deleted it. Is this normal?

Since the PMs with bloodcool (Thanks for helping!) sent I tried to send another message to this person and 12 minutes later it is still in the outbox along with the original message I sent nearly 6 hours ago. The longest it took for a message to send to bloodcool was 4 minutes. I can see a message taking a bit to send but I don't think it should take 6 hours.

Probably the person has not update to Witches and Wizards, that's why it was not able to send... :mrgreen:

But that wouldn't have any affect on the forum...

As far as I understand the outbox, a pm remains in that folder until the other member opens it. After opening, the pm moves to the sent folder.

Another reason could have been a full sent folder. Obviously not your problem, as the pm moved to the sent folder, after bloodcool opened your pm.
I don't know, how the forum reacts on your side, if the inbox of the pm receiver is full. The other day I couldn't open a pm, because of my full inbox. There was a message at the top of my forums mailbox. It took a moment to remove some pm's; thereafter I could open the pm.

I used to have problems with MPs too. It happens to me that I've been unable to send any messages to some people. It's been a while since I've had this bug (but I must confess that I don't use the PM a lot)
