Messages sitting in the Outbox

Postby Red October » 08 Jul 2012, 21:46

I have a message that's been sitting in my outbox for over 10 hours now - any way to hurry it up..? Or has it been sent and the delay is an illusion..? :?

It only disappears from the outbox after the receiver has opened it I think...

I'm still having this problem - I have 3 messages sitting in the outbox with no indication of how long they'll be there. Is anyone else having this problem?? I'm trying to reach people who are actually only on the forum (rather than through FB) and I don't know their email addresses so am relying on this... :|

do you know if they've been on the forum since you sent them?

"They" the people I've sent them to..? They're group messages, so maybe, maybe not. I have had this happen before though, where I sent a message and the person never got it, even after checking, and it was still sitting in my outbox. Seems a bit weird that they don't just send..?

I would just email them, but I have a massive list of email addresses with no real names and some people don't list their email addresses on their profiles so I can't weed them out.

It's the one part of the forum I don't like using because I don't really trust it!

I'll look into the forum settings and see if I can get it to display people's email addresses (when I look at a member's profile I can see an "email **member name**" but Silva pointed out to me that others can't, so it must be because I'm an admin)

Hmmm I have no way of checking whether what I did made a difference :/ seeing as I could already see them!

Red - could you go have a look at someone's profile and see if you can see an "email so-and-so" above the "PM this user" thingy?

Ah, yes - I can click it and a new window pops up with their email address in it. I'm on my work computer so it uses that email address, so I obviously can't do it from here! I think I was looking for the email address listed as part of the profile, I'm sure it used to be that way..?

So, I guess I can email people but I can't see their addresses until I try to do it.

I'll do them one at a time that way, I guess, and ignore the forum messaging system, since it seems to hate me.

Thanks for checking. xx

I have a message in my inbox from you Red, but it says the message was deleted before it was delivered. Was this a test, or has something not gone through properly?

That's probably me losing patience with the thing and deciding to email you instead! Sorry - I'll try it again. xx
