Post by RIMDBogle »

Thanks for your guidance.

PM will remain in your outbox until it is read by recipient, at which time it "moves" to "sent".

Yes, a bit confusing.

You can't "send" it further - it has to be "picked up" by the recipient (then it will move to your "sent messages" box :happy

Would make more sense if it was called "read" instead of outbox. Normally if something is in the outbox, it means it hasn't been sent.

Probably, but I didn't write the software. It's a common question that I put in the wiki: Was my private message read?
A Private Message (PM) stays in the "Outbox" folder until it is read by the recipient.

By "read" did you mean reed or red? :twisted:
Rocket science is not “rocket science” to a rocket scientist, just as personal finance is not “rocket science” to a Boglehead.

Maybe they meant "unread."
