PM stuck in outbox

Postby m0rl0ck » Tue Apr 30, 2013 7:44 pm

I sent a pm in answer to one that manas sent me and this was last week i believe. I have been logged in and out since then and i see he is logged in today and the message is still in my outbox.
In fact, after i drafted and sent a reply i actually got second copy of his message delivered to my inbox and my reply is still sitting in my outbox. Are PM's working the way they are supposed to?

EDIT: OK its gone :)
If one of you all did something thank you and if not, excuse my impatience.

I believe it is still working okay. Messages stay in the outbox until the recipient reads it. It doesn't matter if the person is logged-in or not, what matters is if the person has read it. Then it goes to the sent box.
