Ive noticed before and im noticing it today... Ive sent two DMs today (its not a very regular thing with me ) and i notice they are still sitting in an outbox and not sent yet.

Is there some sort of scheduled task that only sends DMs in outboxes every so many hours/daily? Merely intrigued...

This is a fairly common question due to the way Lemon Fool 'Private Messages' work, and it's not surprising it feels a little confusing...

Once sent, they will sit in your 'Outbox' until the receiving user actually opens the Private Message, so don't worry about anything - your Private Messages have been 'Sent' correctly, they've just not been 'Received' yet, and when you see them disappear from your 'Outbox', then you'll know that they've been opened on the receiving end...

One slight benefit of the above confusing process is that whilst they're sat in your 'Outbox', you do get the opportunity to EDIT them before they're eventually read. Perhaps sometimes a small benefit to an odd way for things to work...

Cheers,

Itsallaguess
