Private message stuck in Outbox [solved]

Maybe I'm having a dumb moment :-) Problem I'm seeing is that a PM I sent yesterday seems to be "stuck" in my Outbox. It doesn't appear in my Sent Messages, and Outbox(1) suggests it's in the queue. Re-editing and submitting the message has no effect.

My experience is that they stay there until the recipient opens the message. At that point they are moved to the Sent folder.

thanks itimpi - this is indeed the case. On the plus side you can delete / edit the PM until it is "picked up". Useful if you drink-PM ;)

Yup. Depending on settings it is also possible to edit PMs until they are read by the recipient.
