Hi,
I've sent a couple of PM's to people, then they sit in the Outbox rather than the Sentbox. Are they actually reaching the intended person when this happens...?
Thanks.

I believe they sit in the 'Outbox' until the recipient accesses their PMs. Once they have read it, it shows in your 'Sent' items.

I guess it's a way of tracking your messages.

That is right. They might not be checking their PM's regularly, and/or are not getting email notices of their PM's. You might want to use the email tab to send an email to them through the board.

I was trying to clean up my inbox because it was getting full, I went to the oldest page, then selected "delete" all, and instead of just those messages displayed it wiped out everything.. yikes!

Try PMing amish, he might be able to recover the stuff for you.
