The outbox contains messages waiting to go out - ie they have not yet been read by the recipient.
Once the recipient reads the message it vanishes from your outbox and would go to your sentbox - but I'm pretty sure we don't have sentboxes here on RC.

Hope that helps =)

The only place on RC that  I know of where there is something called "outbox" is in Personal Messages.  Click (for example on the hilited top line where it says "Welcome back, username, you have X messages".  You will be taken to your received PMs and one of the links will be an icon for "outbox".  You don't really need to do anything much to find the old non-PM messages you have sent:  simply open your profile and all are listed.

Hope I understand your question correctly.

Yes we do, but it's not called that :)

The PM System  is pretty simple and has just two boxes: the "inbox" (PMs received) and the "outbox", (PMs sent). What we don't have is what JustKia thought was the outbox - i.e. a box containing messages waiting to go out.

You write a PM, hit "send" and it goes out immediately.
You can choose whether or not to keep a copy in your "outbox"

In that case mine is broken =(
My outbox contains 1 (very old) message and I have sent many more pm's than that (and I haven't deleted them).
Actually scratch that - after sending you a "test message" I see now that I didn't have the little box checked to save the outgoing messages to the outbox. I wonder when that became unchecked? Oh well, ya learn something every day LOL

Hi Kia,

that sounds like you clicked it to default to "off" in your profile at some time ....

  • Save a copy of each Personal Message in my

outbox by default.
