PM stuck in Outbox ?

Post by samyfam » Mon Nov 30, 2009 5:15 pm

Hi,

I only joined last week so apologies in advance if I am committing any sins or asking dumb questions :oops: - I have spent some time reading FAQs, etc, but cant seem to find anything about the following:

I have tried to send a PM to Neo (re a RUC abort report), and I'm not sure if it has been sent or not.

The Outbox link shows (1) next to it, and when I look in the Outbox the PM is in there and shows a Sent date and time that correlates with when I tried to send it. However, if you look in the Sent box, it is empty.

Am I wrong in assuming that this forum's PM system works similarly to apps like Outlook Express as regards the use of parenthesis, and Sent messages ending up in the Sent folder when they have been sent ?

Or is there a delay between when a user signs up to the Forum and when they are allowed to send PMs ?

Thanks,

Samyfam

It means that Neo hasn't "collected" the PM.

The Chief,

Thanks for the prompt reply to my question.

Now I know my PM isn't stuck in limbo, I'll wait patiently for Neo's response 8) .

might be better to ask in the forum in case anyone else can help? (or benefit from the resulting advice.)

Hi Steve,

Which forum would you recommend I post it in ? Shouldn't I give Neo a while to reply as per his guidance in the RUC pages ?

As I said, I've run the RUC utility and it sticks at 80% complete. As per the RUC guidance, I've done everything suggested to get the RUC to complete, but no joy only an abort report.

Thanks.

Probably post it in the software forum...but routers, general etc would be fine. It will be found and answered and anyone searching in future will find it.
