Issues with the PM system

Have something to say about forums.debian.net itself?

Issues with the PM system

Postby Jackiebrown » 2010-03-07 08:53

I received a duplicate pm that was sent twice due to a user who stated he was having issues with the pm system.

I just tried sending a pm and it seems to just be sitting in the outbox

The PMs will appear in your outbox until they are read by the party you sent them to. This gives you the liberty to delete the message at anytime before it is read. once deleted the message still shows in the recipients inbox but is not viewable.

Hope this helps,

It's not a bad idea, can be confusing though. I wondered what was going on the first time I tried it.
