Why do PM's sit in the outbox for ages? And not actually get sent to the recipient?

Thanks
Steve

As I get at least one email a week about this, I've changed the name of the "Outbox" to "Outbox (Messages unread by the recipient)"

Cool. How about increasing the storage space a bit? I sometimes don't notice it's full and that there are messages on hold (another reason messages sit in other people's outboxes).

500. I do delete, when I realise that it's full. But you have to delete them one page max at a time. Bit of a faff, but worse things happen at sea.

I'm guessing that all 500 take up about as much space as the average uploaded picture. I suspect that most people don't have more than a few in there anyway.

Because you asked so nicely, I set it to 1,000 messages :beerchug:

Can't seem to do PM's with multiple recipients any more?
Any ideas MR T?

I disabled it. Is it a big issue? I didn't see why anyone would need to send a message to multiple users. What's your use case?

Group sexting, been doing it for bloody years on here. When did you disable it? Suppose I've not done it for around 6 months.

Not sure what you mean by use case? That some kinda geek talk??
