Forum private mailbox jams after 20 stored?

Tue Nov 05, 2013 9:12 pm

On three occasions I got automatic notices from the forum that there was private message in my forum inbox.
Got there and couldn't not matter how much I hacked around find them.

After sufficient blundering I discovered that if you have 20 in the inbox any additional are held in some dirt of "pending" limbo. What' swore the sender gets no notice of this and thinks you're a flake not reading or replying to a private message he or she sent.

I managed to reduce the inbox below 20 (can,t remember if it was by deleting or moving some to a folder called temp that I created. And can't remember how one moves messages to a folder. :oops:

Recently another PM arrived in that limbo status.
This time despite flying around can't figure out again how to release it from limbo.
:oops:

Anyone know the exact procedure?

Well, IF this forum works like one other forum I'm a member of, this could explain it:

In that forum private messages sent stay showing in the outbox untill the recipient picks them up.

I seem to recall them showing as sent. Ironically, I would send a moderator a PM - - - - but I don't want it to sit in the outbox :lol:
thanks!!

In the old format, there was a link that would release pending messages if your inbox was full. I haven't filled mine up yet on the new format to know how that works now.

As for messages sitting in the Outbox, they stay there until the recipient opens them. It works as a read receipt in a way.

Thanks - that's what I ended up witnessing.
I was hesitant to PM a moderator - b/c I didn't know if they were going anywhere :D
Thanks again
