I have been trying to send some messages recently via the PM system, have just noticed that the messages I have been sending sit in an "out box", but appear never to reach the" sent box"
Only just noticed this but maybe why I have sent messages which didn't seem to get through in the past either

Or perhaps it's just me Smile

Its possible that the recipients are just reading the email that goes out and thinking no need read it twice?

I have same thing.

As Manic says, messages have to be opened and read on AN to move from outbox to sent items.

I always have several PMs in my outbox, in some cases I know the recipient has read the email transcript but not replied via AN. In others I don't.

Of course if a recipient has changed email address and no longer visits AN, or has died, been kidnapped by aliens or whatever, then it's possible the messages will sit in your outbox indefinitely Sad
