PMs - Help please!

Discussion in 'ARRSE: Site Issues' started by Queensman, Jan 9, 2006.

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 am finding that PMs I try and send are just sitting in my outbox - except one I sent recently to a MOD, which went straight through.

    Can anyone shine some light into this particularly dim corner? Thanks.
  2. They will stay in your out box until the recipient checks his/her messages, as sometimes the information window stating that you have a message doesn't always pop up straight away.

  3. Yes, they stay there until the person you sent them to pick them up.

    That's why you often see messages within threads saying something like 'read your PM'

    So, tell the person you sent the PM to - to read their PM
  4. Don't tell them in threads. It's a waste of time and they'll see they have a message next time they log-in/refresh the home page.
  5. Does that mean if you erase your outbox/sentbox ,the recipient will not rieceive them?
  6. Yep.
  7. Cheers stab tiffy 2b , that means i have to start all over again .
  8. Thank you all for the above, alles ist now klar:

    Queensman is now gently levering his vast frame onto his soapbox.......hurrumph hurrumph...'In my day, it was ones duty to read Pt 1 orders etc....' What's happening to the world?
  9. So true, and the incoming message file.

    Perhaps the recipient is just scared to look having seen who it was from. Surely you aren't just being ignored.....
  10. Anyone know what is the biggest attachment one can put on a PM
