Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have been trying to reply to PMs but all that happens is that messages I am trying to send end up in my outbox. How do I send them? Thanks.

    They stay in the outbox, until the recipient logs in and reads them. Then they go to the sentbox.
     
  3. No wah?


    If they are in your "outbox" it usually means they have not been read by the person you sent them to.

    Once they are read, they move to your sent box, but then im shite at IT so could be wrong.
     
  4. Thanks, was a bit confused how it worked
     
  5. That the recipient "logs in" does not, in itself, cause the message to leave the outbox. Does anyone know at what stage this happens? Going into "Private Messages"? Or opening that particular message?

    When the message is actually read.
     
  7. Does the dirtbox get involved at some point?

    I understand that the text of around 41.2% of all PMs sent involves the dirtbox.
