personal messages to form members

Post#1 » Tue Feb 27, 2018 11:34 am

Hi, I sent a personal message to a member through the forum prompts, but have no idea where it is stored to check copy, nor do I know if it got through as no response. Any advice would be welcome as to rules, procedures etc on this subject.

Click on private messages top right then look to the left side
and you can see out box if the message is still there it hasn't been
read, at lest I think that's how it works.

Thanks Ralph, it checks out that my message was sent.
How does the intended recipient get to know that a message has been sent?
Does he have to stumble across it when browsing the forum or is there some form of alert??
If the former, he might never see it was via the "introduce yourself" section.

Maybe I got that last message wrong. It shows in the "outbox" as being sent on the date BUT it still shows in the outbox and not in the sent messages?? Confused.

if its still in the outbox the other person has not read it, once they read it, it will not longer be in the outbox ;)

Hi Funkycowie, how does the intended recipient get to know that there is a message for him in the outbox??
