How long does it take for a PM to be sent? I created/submitted one and it was still sitting in the Outbox 30 minutes later (vs. being in the Sentbox). Thanks.

Dale,

I've notice that as well, but I wonder if it just gets moved when read. I'm going to send you one right now...

So it was in my outbox for awhile but just changed to sent box. (1:33pm)

I guess the good thing about it is that you can change your mind, edit, resend, etc. up until the time the recipient actually reads it. The bad thing is that it's confusing. I think the "you're message has been sent" screen should just have a blurb explaining that the message will move from your outbox when it is read.

Seems you're right. I replied to yours ASAP and it shows in my Sentbox. Seems odd though.

I'm just used to having an email client, and other PM systems, put the email/PM in the 'outbox' until it is actually sent, then a copy is moved to your 'sent items'.

Good to know. Thanks again. 8)

A message stays in your Outbox until the recipient opens the message.
