So, lately I have been having trouble sending PM'*. After I type it and hit subit, it stis in my outbox and nver sends. Or, it will sit ther for hours before it actually sends. This has happened on several diferent computers. Anyone know why this is happening? I did notice that my sentbox was full, but that didn't help. I sent (tried to) another one and it is still sitting in my outbox and the sent box is empty.

It sits in your outbox until the intended recipient logs in, and the message is delivered to their inbox. At that time, it moves from your outbox to your sent box.

I thought it stays in your outbox untill they actually read it. then it goes to your sent box

Hmmmm....okay, both of those make sense.

So, on that note, anyone heard from Popatim? He left my house around 5:30 yesterday evening and hasn't checked in.

Boosty, I am scared to send you a PM

Yeah, my outbox is currently loaded with unsent/unanswered PMs. I must be writing the wrong crowd I guess.
