Outbox and Sent Box

Post by Rafiki » Wed Jun 27, 2012 10:43 pm

What is the difference between these two boxes? Sometimes I send a message and it appears in my sent box and other times it appears in my sent box. Sometimes items in my outbox move to my sent box after a day or two passes. Can anyone explain the difference between these two boxes? Thanks.

It stays in the outbox until the person receiving it opens it, then it moves to the sent box. I used to run a phpbb board a while back.

Neat. Thats what I thought. The reason why I was confused is because my phone has a outbox and sent folder for my text messages. The outbox are for messages that were in the process of getting sent but failed so they are in the outbox waiting to be resent by me manually while the sent box is for messages that went through. I am glad to hear the outbox on here does not work in a likewise manner. I was worried that perhaps my messages weren't getting sent or that they were being delayed from being sent for some reason due to them sometimes taking a day before they were shifted over to the sent box. Thanks for filling me in guys.

Another question. If I delete an Outbox message is that to suggest that it will not get sent to the person? In otherwords, does it remain in my Outbox until someone opens it, but if I delete it before someone opens it, they will never get around to reading it because it will no longer exist in their inbox?

I can verify that Rafiki. I received notification of an email (from you) last night and went to read it this morning, and you had deleted it. I could not see what the message was.

Neat. Ya I sent you a PM about that awesome looking canoe you put a down payment on. However, after doing a little reading around I found the answers to some questions I had for you so I deleted my PM. Thanks for reconfirming how things operate.
