Post subject:  Operation in the outbox

Dear sirs,
Just maybe my ignorance... But when I try to send a PM to another member, the message is written, then I click on SUBMIT and the message window closes. But the message rests in the Outbox and doesn't appear in the SENT folder, so I don't know for certain if it has been sent out not.
Can you help me?
I'm doing this with a Huawei smart phone.
Thanks,
Inigo Cubillo

It will remain in your outbox until the recipient opens the message. After that, it automatically transfers to the sent box for storage.

Cheers,
Fran

Yep, I have one message in my outbox from October 22, 2017! Someone asked for a date on their Edison Home Phonograph and I sent an answer. They never read it.

That is a weird definition of an Outbox! Usually a message stays in the Outbox until it is sent, not until it is read. Anyway, thank you Fran for the explanation. I came across this post looking for the explanation why my PM stays in the Outbox. Now I know.

That's just how phpBB works. The behavior is identical on some other forums I am a member of that are powered by phpBB. Once you realize how it works, it's not a bad feature. If you send someone a PM, you can tell whether they opened it or not. Not everyone on the forum logs in everyday.
